First GA Meeting of the Fall Semester!

Our first GA meeting of the fall semester saw a 25% boost in attendance, so thank you to everyone for coming out! We are especially excited to see first-year students and students from programs across campus!


Sydney gave a great overview of the three outreach projects we are currently starting, and the door is still wide open for volunteers.

There are three current opportunities, Science Mini Projects, Science Olympiad and the College Access Program. Get involved with Science Mini Projects to work with a local Philadelphia student on a small research project in your lab. Join Science Olympiad to coach students while they compete in a science competition at their school.  If you’re looking for more of a mentoring opportunity, get involved in the College Access Program, in which you’ll get to help local students navigate the college applications process. For more info on these programs, email Sydney at

We are also incredibly excited to announce Lattes with the Ladies, our flagship seminar series in which you can have coffee with leading women in academia, government, industry, science writing and more, in a small group setting (8 max). The events are first-come, first-serve, so pay attention to your inbox and don’t miss out!
