The 2022 EYH conference took place on April 9th. The event consisted of speakers, workshops, demonstrations, and lab tours geared towards motivating young scientists to get involved in STEM. Students participate in two or three workshops organized by Cornell students and faculty, tour state-of-the-art lab facilities on Cornell’s Ithaca campus, connect with peers and mentors, and learn that anyone with a curious mind has what it takes to pursue a future in STEM.
A group of 9th grade students joined CHESS staff on a tour of the CHESS facilities along with a cloud chamber demonstration. These students were able to interact with a wonderful team of female role models and see research in action at the CHESS beamlines.
We’d like to give a special thanks to all the staff and students who volunteered to make this year’s lab tour a success!
