Message from the Chair - Physics

Chair of the Department of Physics Mauricio Sacchi shares a message with alumni.

Mauricio Sacchi - 21 September 2020

To the Department of Physics alumni family, 

Welcome to Alumni Week(end) 2020: Campus to Couch Edition. While we are meeting virtually this year, I am pleased to showcase some of the many remarkable things that our department has to offer.

Over the next week, I encourage you to explore the Shack, the Faculty of Science Hardware Makerspace through a virtual tour. Learn more about 3D printing and the many services that the Shack offers to undergraduate students in the Department of Physics and across the Faculty of Science. 

Next, explore the Observatory, located on the fifth floor of Centennial Centre for Interdisciplinary Science (CCIS) through a virtual tour—tour the outdoor observatory deck where you can see scenic views of campus, explore the domes which house three telescopes, view a scale model of the solar system, learn about meteorites, and more.

Finally, learn about research on COVID-19 being conducted by biophysicist Michael Woodside.

Thank you, and I look forward to connecting with you again soon. 


Mauricio Sacchi
