PING 2017: Investigating the Cosmos on July 23 – August 5, 2017

The Physics Inspiring the Next Generation (PING) 2017: Investigating the Cosmos is a collaboration between the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), the Green Bank Observatory and Associated Universities, Inc. (AUI) to expose traditionally underrepresented minorities to science and engineering with a focus on physics and radioastronomy.

Students will be on location at the Green Bank Observatory, and immersed in the research activities of this national research center. While in residence, students will work in small teams supported by an undergraduate student mentor and a staff scientist (astronomer, physicist, engineer, etc.) to conduct research by observing the universe with a 40-foot diameter radio telescope. Apply here today!

5 “current eighth-graders” will be selected to participate this summer.

TRANSPORTATION will be provided from the Baltimore-DC Metro area, and Charlottesville, VA. However, Parents may provide transportation from other locations.

The program is fully funded, so there is NO COST to students!

Interested Middle School students must submit an
online application before . . .
