The scintillating bubble chamber is a new technology under development ideal for both GeV-mass WIMP searches and coherent elastic neutrino-nucleus scattering (CE$\nu$NS) detection at reactor sites. A 10-kg bubble chamber using liquid argon with the potential to reach and maintain sub-keV energy thresholds is currently under construction. This detector will combine the event-by-event energy resolution of a liquid noble scintillation detector with the world-leading electron-recoil discrimination capability of the bubble chamber. The CE$\nu$NS physics program of this detector will be presented in this talk, including the sensitivity to the weak mixing angle, neutrino magnetic moment, and a light Z' gauge boson mediator, in addition to other sensitivity to New Physics scenarios such as light scalar mediators, sterile neutrino oscillations, unitarity violation, and non-standard interactions.
