The physics department connects with schools and the general public via Facebook live chats with our faculty members and, beginning in February 2017, Saturday Morning Physics presentations. Faculty and instructors also give presentations to local schools. Our Society of Physics Students has a strong outreach mission, as evidenced through their physics demos at Market Square in downtown Knoxville, the annual Pumpkin Drop at Halloween, and their Science Saturday outreach at Pond Gap Elementary School
