LLNL Keynote at San Joaquin Expanding Your Horizons Conference

WHEN

09/19/20 9:00 AM 09/19/20 1:30 PM America/Los_Angeles LLNL Keynote at San Joaquin Expanding Your Horizons Conference United States

The San Joaquin Expanding Your Horizons (SJEYH) is going virtual for 2020 on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

This year marks the 28th year for SJEYH, a conference with a long history of inspiring young women and fostering awareness of careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). The event usually draws more than 500 girls to the University of the Pacific for a day filled with hands-on workshops. However, due to large gathering restrictions brought on by COVID-19, SJEYH has shifted to a virtual format that still will include a special keynote speaker, a group activity and two workshops. Breaks are built into the schedule.

Keynote speaker Jessica Osuna, an atmospheric scientist at LLNL’s National Atmospheric Release Advisory Center, will kick off the virtual event with a talk about her once-in-a-lifetime experience working with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the U.S. Air Force on the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover launch in July.

The SJEYH conference is co-sponsored by Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Sandia National Laboratories/California and the University of the Pacific School of Engineering and Computer Science.
