The Physical Sciences encompasses the branches of natural science and science that study non-living systems, in contrast to the biomedical or life sciences. However, the term "physical" creates an unintended, somewhat arbitrary distinction, since many branches of physical science also study biological phenomena. In general, most projects listed as physical sciences, will consist of projects being done in the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy and Earth & Environmental Sciences. However, projects from the department of Math and projects from the College of Engineering may also be included. Below is just a small sample of past projects offered through our program.
