Membership in SPS at Green River gives students a chance to learn about science far beyond the content of their science classes. Green River College SPS chapter has watched films on string theory and visited a supersonic car. SPS members have worked on building a muti-processor computer cluster and assembling a detector of cosmic rays. All of the topics investigated by SPS are chosen by the student members. The activities of the club are limited only by time and imagination.
