The Future Physicists of Florida will induct 190 Monroe County middle school students in a ceremony at Marathon Middle/High School on the evening of Friday, November 4. This will be the second year that Monroe County has held an FPF induction.
There are about 600 8th graders in Monroe County middle schools this year, so the number of students being inducted is close to one-third of the size of a district-wide class.
The scientific speaker for the Monroe County induction will be FSU Physics Professor and astrophysicist Jeremiah Murphy, shown below. Professor Murphy’s research is described here.
