The Physics Committee was established at the inaugural meeting of Science Atlantic in 1962. Members immediately developed an outline for a core undergraduate physics program to be common across the region, with aspects of its recommendations subsequently implemented throughout Atlantic Canada. In the mid 90’s ‘Astronomy’ was added to the committee’s name to reflect the steadily growing interest in the sub-field.

One of the committee’s major functions is organizing an annual student conference. AUPAC (Atlantic Undergraduate Physics and Astronomy Conference) has been held with great success each year since 1982. The committee is also organizes lecture tours throughout the Atlantic provinces. You can find links to this year’s AUPAC and upcoming lectures, as well as past conference proceedings and tours, on these pages.
