We are proud to announce that FIU’s Society of Physics Students (SPS) chapter, advised by Dr. Pete Markowitz, has been recognized by the SPS National Council as a 2017-2018 Outstanding Chapter and was also awarded the Blake Lilly Prize.

The SPS Outstanding Chapter is the highest level of distinction given to SPS chapters and is received by less than 10 percent of the top chapters annually. With 813 chapters in the society, FIU’s is one of the 77 honored this year.

After careful deliberation, members of the SPS National Council chose the FIU chapter to receive the Blake Lilly Prize, which is funded by the generous donations of Sigma Pi Sigma alumni. This prize was awarded to the chapter based on the quality of its science outreach activities and the reach and scope of its efforts.

Congratulations to all!
