Media Advisory - Jefferson Lab Hosts Summer Intern Science Poster Session

Date: Friday, August 3, 2012

Time: 11:45 a.m. - 2 p.m.

Place: The CEBAF Center lobby at Jefferson Lab, 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. News Media representatives are invited to attend.

Participating in this summer's poster session are:

  • Twelve (12) Hampton Roads-area high school students who participated in Jefferson Lab's Summer Honors internship program, and
  • Twenty-four (24) college students, who took part in the Department of Energy's Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship program and the National Science Foundation-funded Old Dominion University/Jefferson Lab 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. Their research and projects ranged from accelerator and nuclear physics science, engineering, experimental research, free-electron laser projects and computer programming.
