The main Physics Office is located in the North Physics Building, 1400 East and 115 South. Public parking is just east of the building. Go east on 100 South and turn right about 1500 East. The free tour is open as arranged through a specific appointment.


When arriving at the North Physics Building, go to the main Physics Office (201 JFB) and ask the receptionist where to meet the tour guide. You will see two or three of the physics research labs and also have a few minutes to see some physics demonstrations.


The patch is available to purchase at a local Scout Shop.
