Support the Department of Physics and Physical Science
The Physics department prepares students to enter graduate school in the physical sciences, or to enter the work force in any position where the employer is looking for excellent analytical and problem solving skills. UNK's lab and field equipment is among the best in the nation. Our planetarium is the finest between Chicago and Phoenix and our Foucault Pendulum is the only one in the state. Our outstanding facilities include an observatory, a wind turbine and our unique lab that uses spin-polarized electrons. As a vehicle for instruction, we strongly support research projects for our students. This gives them the hands-on experience needed to be successful in their career.
