The acronym for the study of science technology, engineering and mathematics, identified as essential in education.
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.
Students attending the third annual graduate summer school at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) gathered virtually, due to travel restrictions, to get a broad overview of the field of plasma physics.
Summer is usually the time when student interns flock to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) to learn about fusion and plasma physics at a national laboratory. But because of the coronavirus pandemic, this year’s students participated virtually from their homes around the country.
Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory is a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory managed by Princeton University.
