Physics Orientation Camp 2016

13 July - 15 July 2016

NUS Physics Society is organizing a Physics Orientation Camp (POC) this year for all the potential Physics freshmen! The details are listed below:

Title - The Determinator
Date - 13th-15th July 2016 (Wed - Fri), 3D2N camp
Fee - $28 (early bird sign ups) / $30 (after 30 May)

Why should you sign up for POC'16?
The camp will be a great avenue for you to interact with your other fellow like-minded freshies and make new friends. Additionally, you can expect great fun and games throughout the camp, mixed with an engaging storyline! Your seniors will also be interacting with you and sharing their experiences and advice on life as a physics major in NUS! They will also come back on the day of NUS module bidding to assist you with the confusing bidding process. Lastly, it doubles up for networking with seniors who will be able to guide you when you need help with physics.

Camp Storyline sneak peek:
"Your Race is among one of the few that have been called upon by the Intergalactic Union to retrieve the lost Artifact known as "the Determinator". It will be no easy task. You will be expected to pass stringent tests of ability, escape from challenging situations, solve intricate riddles and venture through the vast uncharted Space. Only then can you hope to find the whereabouts of the Artifact, retrieve it safely, and bring glory to your Race. Yet, nobody knows how the future will unfold, and surprises may await you..."
