2014 IU Students’ Trip to ChemMatCARS

January 2015

Undergraduate students of the STEM initiative of the Groups Program (Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs, Indiana University) visited the ChemMatCARS sector at the APS and toured the experimental hutches to learn about research undertaken with synchrotron radiation. During a career panel and discussion, scientists described their research and their personal path to a profession in the sciences. This excursion is an annual highlight for the Groups Scholars program, which supports first-generation, underrepresented minority students, and students with limited financial resources from all racial backgrounds.  The trip was supported by the Indiana University Molecular Structure Center, the Office of the Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs and the Office of the Provost of Indiana University.
