Workshop in Plasma Physics for Undergraduates

June 25-28, 2024

Application closes April 9, 2024

We're excited to welcome students on-site for the 2024 PPPL Undergraduate Workshop in Plasma Physics!  The workshop is a chance for undergraduate first-year and sophomore students to learn about the fields of plasma physics, fusion, and the research done at PPPL as well as opportunities to engage with the research, such as the WDTS Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) and Community College Internship (CCI). The four-day workshop includes lectures and activities covering topics in calculus, electromagnetism, computational physics, and plasma physics and fusion.  The workshop will be held in person. Travel and accommodations will be covered by PPPL.

The four-day workshop includes:

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

Historically marginalized students are especially encouraged to apply.

Eligibility requirements:

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