The Wormhole (Weniger 334 and Remote)

Physics Collaboration and Help Center

 An informal space to work on physics with your peers under the guidance of experienced Assistants. 

The full Wormhole is open Weekdays from 10 AM-8 PM, until 9 PM remotely.

*** Face coverings are required for everyone in the Wormhole ***

Complete instructions for the Wormhole are in Wormhole instructions.pdf.

***********************************************************

   

  • Assistants connected to your course may be more familiar with your topics and homework.  Consider this when choosing times to visit.
  • Your classmates can be a terrific resource.  Look for other students in the Wormhole working on the same material, especially during periods when the Assistants are in high demand.
 

The Virtual Wormhole

The Virtual Wormhole allows you to request help remotely.  You can get help through two different methods:

  1. Connect to the Virtual Wormhole channel in the Introductory Physics MS Team.  (Full instructions for joining the Team are in MS Teams instructions.pdf.)
  2. Join the Wormhole Zoom session here (password Wormhole), and go to the breakout room associated with your course.
 You must be logged in through OSU to use either MS Teams or the Zoom session.
 
 
 

Requesting Assistance

An Assistant will respond to your request as soon as your turn comes up in the queue.

Help is provided in the order requests are received.
You can check the status of your request at https://wormhole.physics.oregonstate.edu/livequeue.
 

Code of Conduct

The Wormhole is an informal space for physics collaboration.

It works best when we accord each other common courtesy.

 Be respectful of other students.
  • Respect others' personal and work spaces.
  • Be conscious of aromas.
  • Be aware of your speech.
  • Respect those who will use the space next.
  • Be mindful of the learning environment.
Be respectful of the Assistants.
  • Be patient - the Assistants will help as many people as possible.
  • Remember that Assistants assist.  They are there to help you learn, not to do the problem or to tell you the answer.
  • Assistants will try to help everyone, but be patient when they aren't familiar with the problem in your course.
  • The Wormhole gets crowded.  If you're not working on physics, please give up your space to those who are.
 

Following these guidelines will help ensure the Wormhole remains a place where everyone can learn effectively.
