A Poster Symposium concluded the inaugural Young Scholars program for high school students from underrepresented groups. The program, led by NPL, was sponsored by us together with the Department of Physics and the POETS Engineering Research Center of the Department of Mechanical Science and Engineering. About 60 people joined the 12 Young Scholars as they presented their work in a poster session held on Jul. 28 in the Loomis lobby. The projects ranged from biophysics, to high energy physics to nanomaterials. At the awards ceremony following the poster presentations, mentor Joseph Bryant, an undergrad in Prof. Perdekamp’s group was given the outstanding mentor award based on input from the students.
