The sprawling efficacy of JKUAT’s Society of Physicist (JSP) has gained novelty and momentum through a ground-breaking daylong seminar held July 31st, 2009. The occasion which attracted over hundred delegates, was presided by Dr. Paul Baki of the University of Nairobi, Department of Physics and Rebecca Injete of teh Radiation Protection Board of Kenya.
As a formidable society pioneered by Atuya Gershom, JSP has grown from strength to strength since its inception and official launching on November 2008. Since then, the society has actively united JKUAT’s physicist’s professionals and opened doors of opportunities for its members.
The society has plans to organize collaborative and marketing strategies for its members within JKUAT community and other organizations. The activities include, publishing a magazine, organizing field trips, intervarsity interactions, and sessions with the private sector. The society is also expected to focus on training and acquisition of equipment to enhance astrophysics.
