The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) is inviting seventh- to tenth-grade girls to step into the world of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at PPPL’s annual Young Women’s Conference on May 7, this year online.

The day of science will be held on a virtual platform where young women can watch live and videotaped science demonstrations, talk to women working in STEM fields, and listen to an inspiring talk by a female scientist.

Princeton Charter Middle School and West Windsor-Plainsboro North High School advance to National Science Bowl® competition

There was plenty of suspense and drama as middle school and high school students tested their knowledge and skills at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) New Jersey Regional Science Bowl on Feb. 19 and 20, hosted by the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, but this year it was all online as the contest went fully virtual for the first time.

“The Renaissance of the Stellarator” is unveiled at first 2021 Science on Saturday lecture

The twisty plasma fusion device known as the stellarator was first envisioned by Lyman Spitzer, the founder of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), 70 years ago as a way to harness the energy of the stars in a bottle. Now, the concept of using stellarators as a clean, affordable and abundant way to produce electricity is making a comeback, physicist David Gates said at PPPL’s first Ronald E. Hatcher Science on Saturday lecture of the year on Jan. 9.
