Saturday, February 11 is the International Day of Women and Girls in Science. To mark the event, the Physics and Astronomy DEI committee has produced this video:

It includes remarks from Sara Sanders, Dean of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences followed by highlights of the APS Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP). The event brought roughly 100 undergraduate women and gender minority students to campus Jan. 20-22 to learn more about the field and how to advance in what is currently an under-represented area.

Thanks go to Cyerra Hutchins for video editing and photos, narrators Cecilia Fasano and Rachael Filwett, as well as Casey DeRoo and the CUWiP organizing committee who provided additional images.
