There are an enormous number of fantastic Internet sites which range from professional physics society sites and journal sites to physics demo sites and query sites. Especially relevant to Mount Holyoke students are those sites dedicated to the women in physics. Below are listed some links to each of these categories. Many more beyond those listed here for each category exist on the MHC Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) Physics Research Guide.
Current students will find the following resources useful:
- Peer to Peer Learning: The PLUMS (Peer-Led Undergraduate Mentoring System) workshops provide a place where students can actively and collaboratively engage with science and mathematics in a structured, supportive environment.
