Physoc aims to provide all things Physicsy to all physicsy people.
While it’s true most of our members come from those studying maths or physics, we encourage absolutely anyone with even the slightest interest in physics to join.
To achieve our noble aims we generally organise talks every two weeks which involve guest speakers followed by a wine and snacks reception. These talks are interspersed with social events and tutorials throughout the year. Our talks have a physics theme and are aimed at all college members. We host board game nights and pub quizzes, as well as our annual Halloween Party and Christmas Party in conjunction with Mathsoc. We also aim to provide introductory tutorials in Latex and Inkscape (For 2nd/3rd year lab reports), as well as Mathematica (For 1st year TP’s and anyone else who despises tedious maths operations).
Last year we also hosted the first ever Maths-Physoc ball. It was an absolute cracker of a night with great cooperation between the two committees. See the Facebook page for updates on this year’s event and to check out how well we all scrubbed up last year!
Following the success of last year’s “Brainfood” events, Physoc are continuing informal Lunchtime Chats, a chance to eat your packed/bought lunch in the Schrodinger Library, with a short casual talk by a researcher here at trinity, discussion about research projects and module choices or just relaxed chatting amongst the general society. Can you really pass up the offer of free tea and coffee with some cheeky biscuits?!
Our trip adviser is currently holed up in her room, organising what promises to be a super trip. The current timeline suggests the second reading week of the academic year, that is the week of the 26th of February so keep your calendar clear and your ears open!!
And for those of you looking to get even more involved, in early October there will be positions available on the organisation committee for our Irish Physics Students’ Conference, to be held in early March. We are also taking suggestions for a more acronym friendly name.
We also have a society library from which members can borrow books, check out the library tab and talk to Sean our librarian for more info .
