A Month in the Sciences

While most students perform winter-term projects off campus during the month of January, the pulse of the Science Center at Oberlin College continues to thrive. With uninterrupted access to laboratories, professors, and equipment, and no other classes to compete for time, students have the opportunity to continue projects started during the academic school year or get involved in research they’ve always wanted to learn about.

This (laser) project is directly related to my physics major as well as my personal goal of pursuing physics in graduate school and eventually a career in experimental AMO research.
