Workshop in Plasma Physics for Undergraduates (Virtual for 2020)

The 2020 Undergraduate Workshop in Plasma Physics will be held REMOTELY July 27-30, 2020Applications are now open until July 3rd 

The PPPL Undergraduate Workshop in Plasma Physics is a chance for undergraduate freshmen and sophomore students to learn about the fields of plasma physics, fusion, and the research done at PPPL. The four-day workshop includes lectures and remote activitites covering topics in calculus, electromagnetism, computational physics, and plasma physics and fusion.  PPPL will be in curtailment during the 2020 Summer so the workshop will be held entirely via zoom and other online tools.  To accommodate time zones, the workshop will have half day schedules 12:30m-5pmET, July 27-30.

The four-day workshop includes:

  • Virtual tour of the Princeton Plasma Physics Lab
  • Lectures and remote activities covering topics in calculus, electromagnetism, computational physics, and plasma physics and fusion.
  • Meeting with current undergraduate interns and graduate students

Underrepresented students especially encouraged to apply.

Eligibility requirements:

  • Freshman or sophomore at 2-year or 4-year college or university
  • Freshman level understanding of electromagnetism and calculus

Applications for Summer 2020 Undergraduate Workshop are open until July 3rd!
