During the last four months, the Lederman Science Center team has developed more than 20 virtual exhibits that communicate Fermilab science. We’re sharing these virtual exhibits with our followers on social media, so thousands of people all around the world can view the virtual LSC exhibits. Check them out.
From Kane County Chronicle, May 19, 2020: Fermilab is hosting its annual STEM Career Expo online this year. The expo will allow high school students to learn more about science fields and what college courses are necessary for a STEM career.
Fermilab takes its popular STEM Career Expo to the web. This year the annual event, an opportunity for high school students to hear from more than two dozen STEM professionals about their careers, is offered as five recorded panel discussions now available on the Fermilab website. Students can learn how neutrino physicists, bioinformatics scientists, actuaries and others got to where they are and hear from people who work jobs in fields that students might pursue in the coming years.
From the University of Chicago, May 12, 2020: A round of AI + Science grants awarded by the University of Chicago’s Office of Research and National Laboratories Joint Task Force Initiative supports new AI applications to boost scientific discovery and education. Awardees include Fermilab scientists Brian Nord, Charles Thangaraj and Nhan Tran.
