Place: Jefferson Lab, CEBAF Center Lobby, 12000 Jefferson Avenue, Newport News, VA 23606

Event:  More than 35 high school and college interns that participated in Jefferson Lab's summer science enrichment programs will share their summer experiences and projects during a Poster Session.

Participating in this summer's poster session are:

  • Six (6) Hampton Roads-area high school students who participated in the laboratory's Summer Honors internship program, and
  • Thirty (30) college students, including those who took part in the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship program and the Old Dominion University/JLab Research Experiences for Undergraduates Accelerator and Nuclear Physics program, which are geared toward undergraduates who are pursuing careers in science or technology.

Many of these individuals are from the Newport News area and Virginia. Their respective summer projects directly involved them in the culture, activities and science of a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory, including accelerator engineering, experimental research, free-electron laser projects and computer programming.
