Teaching Labs

The physics department offers students many teaching laboratories, where classroom theories are put into practice through real-world experiments and simulations. From electricity and magnetism to optics and lasers, our labs feature cutting-edge equipment and facilities. Our commitment to hands-on learning ensures that students’ in-lab experiences will be enriching, helping to cement each learner's understanding of lecture topics.

Not only do students benefit academically from our teaching labs, but they also provide physics-department majors with employment opportunities. Upper-class undergraduate students, and all levels of graduate students, frequently work as lab teaching assistants, providing both wallet and résumé padding, as well as a deeper understanding of fundamental physics principles.
