LANL Summer Physics Camp for Young Women in NM & Hawaii
Los Alamos National Laboratories
The 8th annual Summer Physics Camp for Young Women offers a unique opportunity for young students to explore careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with STEM professionals, including women scientists and researchers from Los Alamos National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratories. This FREE two-week camp will explore topics related to energy and energy security (reliable, affordable access to all fuels and energy sources) and offers students a chance to boost their understanding of how STEM improves the world through hands-on activities, demonstrations, tours, talks and a multiday hands-on engineering project. Students will learn the principles of physics, engineering, bioengineering, chemistry, computer programming and cybersecurity, and will apply their knowledge in a range of exciting hands-on multi-day projects. They will also explore different energy sources, including solar, wind, geothermal and nuclear power, to better understand the challenges faced by our modern society. Participants will also learn a broad range of professional skills including: how to write a resumé, how to apply and interview for a job, and what opportunities are available at our local colleges and at Department of Energy National Laboratories like Sandia National Laboratories and Los Alamos National Laboratory. This is NOT an Internship, this IS a free Camp! Application Deadline is April 1, 2024.
