Texas College Students Selected To Participate At Brookhaven National Laboratory

Texas College Students Selected To Participate At Brookhaven National Laboratory
Posted By: Reggie Culpepper on December 07, 2017

Biology majors Chloe Rogers, senior, and Chania Tripp, sophomore, were just selected to participate in Brookhaven National Laboratory’s Winter College Mini-Semester Program taking place January 8-12, 2018 in Upton, New York. The two were selected as part of a twenty student cohort.

About Brookhaven National Laboratory
Brookhaven National Laboratory serves as a multipurpose research institution funded primarily by the U.S. Department of Energy’s Office of Science. Brookhaven National Laboratories operate cutting-edge large-scale facilities for studies in physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, applied science, and a wide range of advanced technologies. The Laboratory's almost 3,000 scientists, engineers, and support staff are joined each year by more than 4,000 visiting researchers from around the world. Their award-winning history stretches back to 1947, and they continue to unravel mysteries from the nanoscale to the cosmic scale, and everything in between. Brookhaven research has been honored by seven Nobel Prizes, as well as National Medals of Science, Enrico Fermi Awards, Wolf Foundation Prizes, dozens of R&D 100 awards, and many other recognitions.

About the Program
The program will be conducted by BNL researchers and will operate from 8:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. for five days.



It will expose students to the wide range of research projects conducted at BNL, help them to understand different pathways to scientific careers, and develop networking opportunities with the BNL scientific community and administrators. The program format includes orientation, classroom instruction, a communication workshop, tours of research facilities, BNL based literature research assignments, reverse interviews with scientists and engineers, group oral presentations, scientific lectures and safety overviews. First-hand reinforcement of concepts learned will be supported and enhanced by BNL researchers and technical staff. Further, the students will apply for the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship, which offers students the opportunity to become part of a scientific research team for a summer, fall, or spring.
