News Media invited to interview Jefferson Lab summer science enrichment program participants; cover closing Poster Session
News Media representatives are invited to interview, photograph and/or film participants of Jefferson Lab's summer science enrichment programs as they share their summer experiences and projects with JLab staff during a Poster Session scheduled for Friday, Aug. 3, from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. in the CEBAF Center lobby.
Participating in this summer's poster session are:
- Six (6) Hampton Roads-area high school seniors who participated in the Lab's Summer Honors program (HSSHP);
- Sixteen (16) college students who took part in the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI), which is geared toward undergraduates who are pursuing careers in science or technology;
- And seventeen (17) middle-school science teachers participated in the Academies Creating Teacher Scientists (ACTS) program.
Many of these 39 individuals are from this area or central Virginia, while others journeyed from as far away as California. Their respective summer projects directly involved them in the culture, activities and science of a national laboratory. Many participated in projects or research involving accelerator engineering, experimental research, free-electron laser projects and computer programming.
News Media representatives planning to attend the Poster Session are asked to contact Kandice Carter, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or phone (757) 269-7263, by 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2.
