Once every four years Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society, hosts a unique meeting that brings together hundreds of undergraduate and graduate physics students, practicing physicists, and physics alumni from across the United States for a weekend of cutting edge science and reflection on the role of the scientist in society. The Quadrennial Physics Congress is unlike any other physics meeting, combining round-table discussions, distinguished speakers, and laboratory tours with poster sessions and celebrations of art and science.

The 2008 Congress was an energetic, inspiring meeting of more than 600 physics students, faculty, and alumni at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, IL. The upcoming Congress, being held from November 8-11, 2012 near the Kennedy Space Center in Orlando, FL, will build on the energy and enthusiasm of the 2008 Congress with an anticipated 800 participants exploring the theme Connecting Worlds Through Science and Service.

The Congress provides your organization the exceptional opportunity to engage hundreds of America’s brightest and most enthusiastic physics undergraduates, many of whom will go onto successful careers in STEM.

  • The Congress is the largest meeting specifically for undergraduate physics majors in the world
  • Nearly 60% of students who earn a bachelor’s degree in physics get their first job in the private sector
  • Of those private sector employees with bachelor’s degrees in physics, approximately 70% go into the fields of engineering, science, or technology

The 2012 Quadrennial Physics Congress promises to be the largest, most dynamic Congress yet. We encourage your organization to partner with Sigma Pi Sigma in this tremendous opportunity to provide an once-in-a-lifetime experience for several hundred physics undergraduates who represent the future of engineering, science and technology ingenuity in America.
