Women in Science Conference

Nebraska EPSCoR is proud to sponsor the annual Women in Science Conference, hosted by UNL's Center for Science, Mathematics & Computer Education. The event gathers high school students to help them:

- explore their interest in science careers,
- interact with career and academic professional women in science Meet current women science students,
- meet other high school women from across Nebraska and the region who are interested in science,
- discover a range of professions as diverse as biologists, geologists, engineers, food scientists, computer scientists, and those in the medical fields.


Young Nebraska Scientists

The Young Nebraska Scientists program offers summer science camps at Nebraska college and university campuses for middle and high school students, and paid summer research experiences for high school students. Registration typically begins in January.


Women in Physical Sciences Conference

At “WoPhyS,” student researchers enjoy a three-day conference for undergraduates to expand their current research experiences, interact with students from other universities, and attend scientific talks given by scientists who are leaders in their field. The annual conference is organized by UNL's Materials Science Centers: MRSEC, CNFM, and NCMN. The conference focus highlights progress in the quest for new materials and nanoscience. If you are a research-active undergraduate studying physics, chemistry, engineering, astronomy or related STEM disciplines, then this conference is for you!


Nebraska Research & Innovation Conference

The Nebraska Research & Innovation Conference (NRIC) is presented by Nebraska EPSCoR, with funding from the National Science Foundation, to advance areas of study that are important to our state. The annual NRIC event is free to attend and features an excellent slate of subject matter experts as speakers; it concludes with a poster session, where students present their research and network with leaders.
