Achieving in Science through Physics Instrumentation, Research and Exploration

The ASPIRE program will host two, five day sessions in the summer of 2018! Session 1 will be August 6th-10th, and Session 2 will be August 13th – August 17th, from 9 am to 5 pm each day in the Physics Research Building at Ohio State. The program only takes place during the day and overnight accommodations are not expected or included. Applications can be submitted hereApplications for both sessions are due June 30th. 

The ASPIRE workshop is for high school women who are entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grades. Participants will get their hands on physics equipment and software used by physicists and learn about physics research. In last year’s ASPIRE workshop, participants worked on three separate radio-themed projects where they searched for a hidden transmitter using antennas and oscilloscopes, analyzed real data from the ANITA neutrino experiment in Mathematica, and programmed an Arduino to produce their own mini-radio station
