While STEMCats may be one of the newest Living Learning Communities on campus, it is providing incoming students with many unique opportunities. Students are not only able to live on campus and take courses with like-minded peers, but STEMCats also allows incoming freshmen students to participate in research and connect with peers, upperclassmen, and professors. In this podcast, we talk with several Undergraduate Instructional Assistants, or UIA’s, who have been building connections with STEMCats freshmen through sharing their experiences. Learn...

The Department of Physics & Astronomy is excited to welcome professor Dale Kocevski to its faculty!

Professor Kocevski joins us this fall focused on researching distant galaxies that host actively accreting supermassive black holes. Evidence suggests that the evolution of galaxies is intricately linked to the presence of black holes at their center. Kocevski plans to use multi-wavelength observations to examine the demographics of the galaxies that host these growing black holes.

We hear a lot about "energy independence" and "renewable energy," but what do those terms actually mean? A class is being offered to answer these questions and introduce students to concepts and debates around energy: where it comes from, how we use it, and what the future of energy looks like.  

UKC120, “Physics of Energy,” will examine coal, oil, nuclear power, hydroelectricity, wind, and solar power. Professor Joseph Straley will teach the course, and in this...

Stargazing is typically reserved for after sundown, but what if you want to look at the biggest star in the sky? On June 5th, 2012, the planet Venus was visible by day – traveling in front of the sun! This is called the Transit of Venus, and is a rare astronomical event. A few hundred people gathered at the UK Arboretum to view the transit of Venus through special telescopes that allow safe observation of solar activity. In this podcast, we went to the Arboretum to talk to participants and...
