Aspen physics program airs

ASPEN – A new program gives local high school physics students a chance to interview world-renowned physicists.

The fourth Radio Physics program airs at 4:30 p.m. Tuesday on KDNK. Aspen High School students Caroline Boyd, Zach Kendrick and Joe Kistner will discuss biophysics. They will interview professor David Nelson, of Harvard University, whose range of interests focuses on problems that bridge the gap between the physical and biological sciences.

High schools from Aspen to Rifle have been invited to participate in Radio Physics, which airs the fourth Tuesday of every month and also can be heard online or downloaded on iTunes.

Radio Physics is sponsored by the Aspen Center for Physics. For more details, contact Patty Fox at the Aspen Center for Physics at
