The High School Plasma Lab is open to All  students interested in physics. We currently have a wait list for interested students. We open the program when we begin a new project. Students on the waiting list will be notified on a first come first served basis and as space is available.

We meet most Saturdays from 9:30 am to 2 pm. All students are welcome to join. Tours of the facility can be arranged.
