Computing Across the Sciences – Mini-Semester at Argonne

8 November 2023

We would like to invite your students to the Laboratory’s fourth annual Computing Across the Sciences – Mini-Semester for Underrepresented Groups in STEM on Tuesday, December 12, 2023 through Friday, December 15, 2023. This year’s Mini-Semester will be conducted virtually on Zoom. The four half-day immersive experience will provide:

  • Learning Blocks – Hands-on learning sessions to build computational skills desired by research mentors.
  • Application 101 – Workshops to dissect each component of the SULI and CCI application.
  • Computational Science Seminars – In-depth overviews of key research areas by leading researchers at Argonne.
  • Networking Sessions – Panel discussions with Argonne research mentors and former internship students.
  • DOE Exploration – Learn about the National Laboratory complex directly from the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science.

Our goal for this Mini-Semester is to showcase the diverse STEM research and opportunities at Argonne and across the DOE national laboratory complex with a computational lens, provide small hands-on experiences to build key skills in research, and support students in their completion of SULI and CCI internship applications.

Tuesday through Friday
December 12 – 15, 2023
9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. CT
