Fall 2020 news

We are excited about making full use of remote-learning technology to run our full set of normal PHYS and ASTR courses in Fall 2020, including PHYS 1190 and 1210, and ASTR 1000, and all regular laboratory sections. Information about how each course will run (virtual lectures at scheduled times vs pre-recorded material) will appear in our public Banner system in July:

We have demonstrated experience with making physics demos available remotely that we are building on to provide high quality remote labs:

For several years SMU students at all levels have had the ability to carrying out astronomical observing projects remotely with the automated Burke-Gaffney Observatory (BGO) telescope:

We encourage all students, including 1st year students thinking about astronomy or physics, to engage with the SMU Astronomy & Physics Society (SMUAPS) this summer:

Students with questions and concerns are encouraged to contact chair@ap.smu.ca
