Abstract

The Society of Physics Students chapter at Central Washington University (CWU-SPS) strives to be the first nonprofit organization in central Washington to offer a diverse array of educational physics products and services. Based on the demonstrated need from regional educators, CWU-SPS proposes to design and construct inquiry-based physics activities and demonstrations. These products can be used by educators and citizen scientists for the classroom and programs for the general public. CWU-SPS products can be incorporated into a variety of educational settings, whether as prescribed experiments or open-ended activities. Along with the design, development, and construction of activities and demonstrations, CWU-SPS offers a variety of services that include the development of curricular and assessment materials. The depth and breadth of our science specialists also provide us the ability to design and perform topical science programs for schools and the general public. A competitor analysis shows there are no other businesses or nonprofits in the area that offer these services. CWU-SPS’s mission will be to provide high-quality, pedagogically effective and affordable educational products and services for schools and the general public of central Washington.
