Join us for a day of celebrating women in science! In partnership with the American Physical Society, The University of Chicago is hosting a conference bringing together women working in physics or physics-related fields. The conference includes a program (detailed below) for high school students to interact with other conference particpants. The conference is full, but if you would like to be added to a waitlist, please email us.
Students who are under 18 years of age must bring a signed waiver with them to the conference to be allowed to participate. Students over 18 must bring a photo ID showing their birthdate.
