January 2024

The last half year has been extremely busy for the LSOP Crew. We teamed up with Amplify to develop two awesome new programs, worked with indigenous communities, and took part in the grand reopening of the Madison McDonald Observatory. LSOP teamed up with the Physics Department to host the American Association of Physics Teachers Colorado/Wyoming Section annual meeting and we teamed up with CSU Spur to host an eclipse watching party. We also developed Making Waves kits with the American Physical Society as part of PhysicsQuest. This newsletter features an article called Part of the LSOP Family by our intern (and brand new CSU student) Erika Monrreal-Garcia!
