The conference experience

Group of faculty and students at SACNAS 2019.
SACNAS 2019. Many are missing, but this was the largest group we could corral.

Last week, Honolulu was the site of SACNAS 2019 – The National Diversity in STEM conference. It was the largest of its kind ever, with over 5000 participants from across the US and its territories. This made a great opportunity to take some of our students, and give them the experience of their first national conference. There were many workshops and exhibits over the three days, and things were probably a little overwhelming, but we managed to squeeze in some fun amongst the work.

The plan for this space is to include a series of posts from students, both past and present, to share their experiences. We’ll be rolling them out over the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned ….
