Women physics majors attend CUWiP conference at Virginia Tech
Two Roanoke College physics majors, Morgan Heckman and Rae Galatas, along with physics faculty member Dr. Rama Bala, attended the 2017 Annual Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWip) held at Virginia Tech from Jan 13-Jan 15, 2017.
“The primary goal of the CUWiP conference is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas”.
“The most interesting aspect of the conference was to see the range and diversity of physics topic pursued by physicists and all around the country. It was also important to see the both the professional and personal aspects of female physicists” said Morgan. It’s nice to see both young women had a great experience at the conference, and learned so much from it!
