Three C-GEM students received travel awards to attend the 2023 National Diversity in STEM conference from October 26-28 in Portland, Oregon: Jared Balsz (SURP undergraduate, University of New Mexico), Isaac Garcia (undergraduate, UC Berkeley), and Hana Kang (undergraduate, UC Berkeley). Isaac and Jared presented posters describing their work, and Isaac won an outstanding undergraduate poster presentation award! Great job to both, and congratulations Isaac!

The National Diversity in STEM conference (NDiSTEM) is “the largest multidisciplinary and multicultural STEM diversity event in the country.” Organized by the Society for the Advancement of Chicanos and Native Americans in STEM (SACNAS), NDiSTEM “is a gathering which serves to equip, empower, and energize participants for their academic and professional paths in STEM.” Managing Director Sarah Smaga attended SACNAS to share opportunities at C-GEM as part of the NSF Centers for Chemical Innovation expo booth.
