PPPL receives international recognition for platform to conduct educational experiments remotely by anyone, anywhere

A computer platform developed  by Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory physicist Arturo Dominguez and others that allows users all over the world to operate a real plasma experiment from their living rooms was among 10 winners chosen by an international science committee as a cutting-edge digital education technology. 

The technology was among 10 global winners in digital education technology, one of 10 categories with 10 winners each. The winners were chosen from more than 900 nominations of breakthrough technologies from 110 countries.

Virtual internships for physics students present challenges, build community
