Young Women's Conference in Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics

The 18th annual Young Women's Conference (YWC) took place on the Princeton campus on March 22, 2019, and welcomed over 700 middle and high school age girls.  Students hailed from 31 schools from around New Jersey, and comprised the largest crowd the YWC has yet seen.  Students received engaging lab tours and watched exciting demos, some led by PCCM researchers, across all of Princeton's science departments. In addition to exploring the labs, the 7th through 10th graders took part in hands-on science activities in the Frick Chemistry Building and listened to inspiring talks led by Princeton Faculty.

PCCM also provided science communication training to YWC presenters during the week prior to the event, to researchers from PPPL, Lockheed Martin, Rutgers and more.
