On April 2nd, U.S. Congressman Mike Quigley visited the Department of Physics
and met with the students and researchers of the Microphysics Laboratory to hear about MPL’s current research programs and their real-life applications. In addition to touring the Microphysics Lab and congratulating physics professor Siva Sivananthan
on his lab’s extraordinary work, Congressman Quigley asked a multitude of questions in order to understand the science behind the demonstrations. Quigley’s lab tour concluded with a presentation from three students from Benito Juarez High School, where MPL has an ongoing partnership and recently helped a student team with an entry for a robotics competition.
