The finale of the Simons-NSBP Scholars Program (SNSP) took place on Friday, August 21, starting at 1PM EST. This program is a joint venture between the Simons Observatory and the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP). The Simons-NSBP Scholars Program has hosted 21 students for summer research experiences over the past 7 weeks. This year's Simons-NSBP Scholars are a dynamic group of individuals who have brought a lot to the program. Their home institutions are spread across the country, ranging from upstate New York to southern California. You can learn more about the program by clicking here.
This Finale will highlight the work of students participating in the inaugural Simons-NSBP Scholars Program. It will begin with a welcome address by Stephon Alexander, the President of the National Society of Black Physicists. Then each Scholar will make a short presentation (see presentation details below). The Finale will conclude with closing remarks by David Spergel of the Center for Computational Astrophysics and the Simons Observatory.
Finale Presentation: During the Finale each Scholar gave a short (3-4 minute) presentation on their research project and experience in the SNSP.
Recorded Presentation: Each Scholar will record an asynchronous 10-minute presentation introducing their project and describing their work on the project. All presentations will be posted online for anyone to view after the Program Finale.
