The Austin Community College Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a chapter of a national organization that is designed for students with an interest in physics. They meet several times a month to explore internship opportunities, discuss various physics topics, host guest speakers, plan field trips and experiments, and to enjoy the company of others who love physics.
SPS couples the energy of handfuls of isolated, sometimes small groups of students into a support system of hundreds of similar groups and thousands of affiliated individuals across the globe. SPS members are eligible for awards, internships, research opportunities, grants, and more!
The Nucleus, a digital collection of information for Physics students, has a comprehensive listing of research experiences for undergraduate students in Physics. Many of these opportunities are open to freshman and sophomores. Check out this link for more information.
The Nucleus is maintained by the National Society of Physics
