At its very core, physics is an experimental science. Every theory must be tested; discrepancies can often lead to new insights and discoveries. If the United States is to retain preeminence as the center of physics innovation, our young scientists must have a wide-ranging, modern, hands-on advanced laboratory experience.
Here, they can get the breadth of exposure to many fields of physics, and develop the variety of transferable experimental skills that will allow them to create new physics. This Foundation exists to enhance this essential educational experience.
