From DOE, May 20, 2020: Lee C. Teng is now 93 years old. The internship that bears his name was created jointly by Fermilab, Argonne National Laboratory and the U.S. Particle Accelerator School in 2007. He started work at Fermilab in 1967 and spent the next 22 years working in high-energy physics. After a two-year leave of absence that started in 1983, he picked up again at Fermilab, working until 2004, when he retired.

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 American Geosciences Institute, May 2020: Fermilab scientist Jessica Esquivel is featured in this series on women in STEM, hosted by the American Geosciences Institute.

It’s incredible to think that last year, Fermilab’s TARGET summer program for high school students turned 40. And this year, our Summer Internships in Science and Technology for undergraduates will see its 50th anniversary. If you’re looking for an extra helping hand on your experiment this summer, consider mentoring or advising TARGET or SIST intern. Postdocs, scientists, engineers, computer professionals are invited to submit research projects and commit to providing teaching, guidance and supervision.

From Yahoo! Finance, Feb. 11, 2020: A new monumental exhibit of the most women statues ever assembled in one location, at one time, is a first-of-its-kind, life-sized 3-D printed statue exhibit of more than 120 AAAS IF/THEN® ambassadors. Fermilab scientist Jessica Esquivel is one of the IF/THEN® ambassadors. The exhibit will be free to the public and will debut at Dallas’s NorthPark Center on Friday, May 1.
