Physics of Atomic Nuclei program held remotely 26-30 July

The 28th Physics of Atomic Nuclei (PAN) program remotely hosted 36 high-school students from 18 states 26-30 July. The Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) organized the intensive online workshop to give future scientists a taste of nuclear astrophysics.

In addition to daily lectures from researchers affiliated with JINA-CEE, students remotely formed teams to complete a research project designed by one of FRIB’s research faculty. Each project featured modeling and/or computational techniques to help students experience the life of a nuclear astrophysicist.
