2015

Fermi Summer Interns Program in Science (Program Flyer)
Students will learn about science, computers, and electronics in a fun way, and will build electronic games and devise their own experiments to test scientific concepts.


2014

Fermi Summer Interns Program in Science (Program Flyer)
We welcome local students from Chicago Public Schools to our campus for a week of lectures from faculty members and hands-on exercises using current hardware and software.

Expanding Your Horizons
A one day symposium for middle school girls showing them the exciting and diverse experiences science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers have to offer.

Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics
The Midwest Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) at The University of Chicago is a four-day regional conference for undergraduate physics majors. The goal of CUWiP is to encourage undergraduate women as they begin their careers in physics. The conference will provide information about graduate school, professions in physics and access to other women at various stages of their careers. The program includes research talks by female physicists, a tour of a national lab, panel discussions on getting involved with research as an undergraduate, applying to graduate school, a poster session and more.
