Hamilton speaks at Fall Faculty Lecture Oct. 17

The university and the community are invited to the 2017 Fall Faculty Lecture, “Earth, Solar Wind and Sun,” featuring Bob Hamilton, PhD, professor of physics, and recipient of the 2016-17 Undergraduate Faculty Achievement Award for Research and Scholarship.

Join us Tuesday, Oct. 17, for the presentation. The lecture runs from 6 to 7 p.m. in Hoover 105. Hamilton will discuss the recent eclipse and how this rare sight illustrates the sun’s intricate and dynamic role in shaping the larger, unseen environment of the earth. The sun shapes both the solar wind and the magnetic field which encompass our entire solar system. Highlights from research conducted by and with students at George Fox will be presented using graphics and animations.

Prior to the lecture that evening, the 2017 Fall Richter Student Scholars Symposium will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. in the Hoover lobby. Student scholars from the university’s graduate and undergraduate programs will present their research in a conversational poster format. Refreshments will be provided by the Faculty Development Committee.
