Young Women’s Conference
For 240 young women from area schools, the excitement of scientific discovery was illuminated by a visit to a Princeton University laboratory where researchers are pursuing a new energy source linked to the sun's power.
Fisher Middle School eighth grader Lucie came from Ewing Township hoping to learn more about science and to see technical demonstrations. Her schoolmate, Maria, wanted to find out about new fields of research.
Lucie and Maria were among the seventh- through 10th-grade female students from 28 area schools who journeyed to the University's Forrestal Campus in Plainsboro to attend the Young Women's Conference, an annual event sponsored by the U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE)Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL).
