On June 3, Yale Wright Laboratory (Wright Lab) officially welcomed the 66 participants of the 2024 Summer Student Research Program at Wright Lab, which runs for eight weeks, from June 2-July 26, 2024.

All student researchers working at Wright Lab (WL), the Yale Physics Department, the Yale Astronomy Department, the Yale Quantum Institute (YQI),  and those in certain associated programs at Hopkins Authentic Research Program in Science (HARPS), NCA&T (QISE Scholars/ASCEND Initiative), SCSU (Werth IAF/Quantum Pie), and QuantumCT during the summer of 2024 were invited to join the program.

Participants from SCSU joined the kickoff remotely (above), as did a few students who are not yet located in New Haven but will be arriving in the coming weeks.
 
The programming is designed to provide training opportunities in the physical sciences, technology, and scientific instrumentation by providing hands on research and mentoring experiences; technical and professional development training workshops; immersion in the local, national, and international research communities, and the opportunity to participate in and/or lead outreach activities.  At the end of the program, each student will give a final presentation on their summer’s work to mentors, peers, and the community.

The Summer Student Research Program at Wright Lab is an annual program, sponsored by Wright Lab since 2018.  In 2022, the program expanded and is now co-sponsored along with Yale Astronomy, Yale Physics, and YQI. The program is coordinated by Victoria Misenti, Wright Lab program manager; Florian Carle, YQI manager; and Robert Zinn, professor of astronomy, with logistical support from Yale Physics administrative staff members Monique Ancion and Sage Hampton, and YQI events coordinator Amy Badner.
