Summer School Programs
From middle schoolers to graduate students, more than 300 were introduced this year to real-world science, technology, engineering and math.
The event attracted 124 participants and explores the successes and challenges of the theory that describes subatomic particles and fundamental forces.
An award-winning mentor and networking guru, Al Ashley has placed thousands of underrepresented minority students in science and engineering summer research programs.
More than 100 students worked on projects ranging from website development to imaging techniques for X-ray studies, learning new ways to apply their talents.
The summer school explored upcoming opportunities to expand our understanding of the universe and its fundamental physics, from mysterious dark matter to recently detected gravitational waves.
Participants of SLAC’s summer school learned about the next generation of collider physics through lectures, topical conference talks, student projects, poster sessions and tours.
Thirty students from around the country performed research projects and more at SLAC this summer through the SULI program.
Science-interested teens spent a week at the lab learning more about STEM at the inaugural Greene Scholars Program Summer Science Institute at SLAC.
SLAC is ramping up its efforts to understand neutrinos – elusive fundamental particles whose properties may help researchers solve a number of cosmic mysteries.
At UXSS, 90 graduate students and postdocs from all over the world got a crash course in how to do research at X-ray lasers such as LCLS.
