West Virginia University May 17-20

To celebrate your hard work in the PSC,  we are planning to host Capstone Seminars! Capstone Seminars give you the chance to experience campus life, find out more about STEM career paths and most importantly to share your work with your peers! You will be asked to work with members of your team to prepare a presentation about your work.

This is an all expenses paid opportunity!

The WVU Capstone Seminar begins Thursday evening, May 17. We’ll host a reception for you, and get you settled in to your dormitory accommodations.  Friday, May 18 is Career Exploration Day!  We’ll tour STEM laboratories, and do some fund hands-on activities too! Saturday, May 19 is our Seminar Day. Physics faculty and upper level students will describe their research to you, and then you will do the same through a professional poster session.  The Green Bank Observatory will print these for you ahead of the Seminar!

Qualifications: To qualify for Capstone in 2018 you must be an active PSC member. That means that you must analyze 50 sets of plots. You will gain access to data plots AFTER you are certified.
