Physics & Engineering Club

"All science is either physics or stamp collecting."
Ernest Rutherford

Welcome to the Physics and Engineering Club website! We are a group of individuals interested in studying God's mysteries and enjoying his surprises along the way. 

This semester we have some pretty awesome activities coming up, so check out our calendar in case you want to join us for our camping trip or our annual paintball tournament. Maybe you like kids and you might be interested in our Science Day for Flag Camp and West Side 4 Jesus. Or maybe you're more into our biannual ballistic testing.

Whatever you choose, you are welcome to join us for lots of fun while marveling at the wonders of God's majesty as portrayed in Physics.

When people hear the word "physics," most automatically associate it with tedious lectures on Einstein's Theory of Relativity or are intimidated by the complex ideas and philosophies behind the world around us. However, learning more about physics can be fascinating -- especially when learning with others.

The Physics and Engineering Club is dedicated to revealing nature’s phenomena to everyone. We experiment with things like:

  • Liquid nitrogen
  • Dropping items off of the pendulum tower
  • Vibrating sand on Chladni plates
  • Tornadoes in a bottle
  • Van de Graff generators
  • Rube Goldberg Machines

For guest speakers, the Physics and Engineering Club has had professors and professionals from the work field come in to talk about subjects such as the program Mathematica, the particle accelerator in Switzerland, and many other topics.

A special emphasis is placed on community service. A few times each academic year, the Physics and Engineering Club sets out to help those in our local community. Not only does it help those around us, but each member of the club receives a personal benefit.


The Physics and Engineering Club is also a great way to meet new people and socialize with others. It helps create a circle of life-long friends that share this interest.

If you are interested in joining the Physics and Engineering Club or hearing more about it, feel free to come by the Physics and Engineering Department offices, or email us at physengclub@southern.edu.You do not have to be a physics or engineering major to join.

Anybody is welcome!
