HAWK - EYES
Our first dedicated Outreach Program vehicle.
Funds for this vehicle were provided by the University of Iowa Provost and the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
This program paid for in part by grants from the American Physical Society ( APS ) "Physics On The Road" grants for the 2005 and 2006 calendar years, the General Electric Corporation, the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) Bauder fund 2005 - present, the American Physical Society ( APS ) "LaserFest" grant for 2010, the University of Iowa "Expanding and Enhancing STEM Initiatives Within CLAS" grant which is part of the "Better Future for Iowans Initiative" funded through the Provost's Office for the 2012-13 calendar years, and a Van Allen Probes EMFISIS EPO Phase E grant from 2013 thru 2015.
