Connecting With Our Community

Faculty and Students in the Department of Physics & Astronomy at UMD are involved in many outreach projects.  

Our main outreach programs include the Marshall W. Alworth Planetarium, the Charles L. Matsch GeoDome Theater, and outreach at the Ashe River Neutrino Physics Lab. 

Several of our faculty judge at the Minnesota State Science Fair and we frequently send faculty and students out to visit area K-12 schools. We are also involved with Swenson College's STEM Discovery Day and the Congdon Park School Family Science Night.
