This is the seventh year that subjects ranging from elementary particles to the applications of Nanoscale have been illumined for students and their teachers. February 11 will be the third of seven-part series. On-site registration is possible until 9:20 a.m. the day of the seminar but online registration is preferred by visiting http://cyclotron.tamu.edu/smp/

All programs are held at the Physics Department in the Hawking Auditorium of the George P. Mitchell Physics Building on the Texas A&M campus.
