Mr. Bob 100x100 Challenge

The Mr. Bob Challenge has the goal of raising 100 donations of $100 (or more) each in support of the undergraduate lab facilities used in teaching within the Department of Physics and Astronomy at KU. The Bob Curry Fund for Undergraduate Teaching Labs was established to honor Mr. Robert Curry, Director of Undergraduate Labs within the KU Department of Physics and Astronomy for 35 years. In addition to his outstanding service supervising the labs and the graduate teaching assistants who directed them for the last three decades, Mr. Curry has become a YouTube star, where his laboratory video demonstrations of the fundamental ideas underlying the undergraduate Physics labs at KU are now among the most watched videos linked to KU.

For each $100 donation, donors will receive free a Mr. Bob T-shirt featuring the ultimate-in-cool image of Mr. Bob on the front and the phrase “That’s MISTER Bob to you.” on the back.

If you wish to submit a donation to the Bob Curry Fund for Undergraduate Teaching Labs for $100 or more and you wish to receive your free T-shirt, please fill in the form below and press Submit. The information you supply will allow us to select the appropriate size T-shirt and ship it to you at the address we receive from KUEA upon confirmation of your donation from the KU Endowment Association. Upon submission of the information, you will be redirected to the KUEA donation page for the Bob Curry Fund. Thanks for your support!

Yes, there’s a 23-foot-long kiln on campus. Yes, it’s fired up only once per semester. Yes, it’s pretty cool.… https://t.co/OD2iunMK6D
