Student Symposium 2013: July 26-27, Los Alamos High School

This year's Symposium, "Championing Scientific Careers," was held at the Los Alamos High School campus (see poster (pdf)).

The Student Symposium provides a unique opportunity for students to

  • present their research
  • broaden their expertise
  • prepare them for careers in science and nontechnical fields
  • network and make professional contacts

This year the Symposium was held on the same grounds and during the Lab's Employee Day so that many employees and their families could also participate in the poster presentations along with Los Alamos Lab peers and mentors.
