2019 Haunted Science Lab

ISU Physics and Pocatello Kiwanis To Host a Haunted Science Lab


ISU Physics, the Kiwanis Club of Pocatello, and ISU Physics will be hosting a Haunted Science Laboratory exhibit open to the public on Saturday, October 26, 4:00 - 9:00 pm in the old Pocatello Street Operations Building at 1080 South 1st Ave. in Pocatello.  The Haunted Laboratory features interactive exhibits designed to delight, fright, and educate kids of all ages.   Exhibits include a Van deGraff generator, hovercraft rides, lasers moving to music, and lots of cool illusions with smoke and mirrors.  Several exhibits use the same principles of those of Disneyland's Haunted Mansion, except that here they are explained!   The exhibits are also open to schools and educational groups at no charge by appointment Monday, October 21 through Friday, October 25.  The entrance fee on Saturday will be $3 per person, or $7 per family (limit 6). All proceeds will go to Kiwanis supported charities benefiting southeast Idaho Children. For more information about the exhibits, contact Jasmyne in the ISU Physics office at 208-282-2350 (coseoutreach@isu.edu).

Physics Programs

The ISU Department of Physics offers many degree options including a Physics minor, an Associate of Science, a Bachelor of Arts, a Bachelor of Science, a Master of Science, a Ph.D. in Applied Physics and a Ph.D. in Engineering and Applied Science in cooperation with the College of Engineering.

Please see the Physics section of the undergraduate catalog for required classes and more program information.

Undergraduate Programs

An Associates degree is available for those completing an introductory sequence of physics courses.

A Bachelor of Arts or minor in Physics are also available to aid students seeking an interdisciplinary education.

The Bachelor of Science program provides a core curriculum focusing on physics and related courses. Beyond the core curriculum the student may choose from physics and related courses in order to complete the degree. The program is designed to provide a flexible degree that can be used for a career in physics or closely related fields. The student should complete a B.S. before progressing to a Master of Science in physics. BS course requirements.

Graduate Programs

The Master of Science in Physics program is tailored to the student's needs. An appropriate faculty member should be consulted when tailoring the program to meet student needs.

The Master of Natural Science in Physics program is designed primarily for teachers and prospective teachers who want to improve their understanding of the subject matter of physics.

The Ph.D. Applied Physics is available in the areas of Radiation Science, Accelerator Applications and Applied Nuclear Physics.
