- GradWISE is holding conference featuring the top women in STEM fields talking about their experiences, their advice, and open for asking questions. The event is primarily online where people can stream it for free, but the UCSD gradWISE group will be having a viewing party. If you cannot make it, you can always stream at home, just make sure you register on the link below.

CUWIP, Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics, is annual, national conference that provides females physics students with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas. UWIP has attended as group for the past 2 years, and hopes to continue to do so.
If anyone is interested in collaborating with Physics Girl on Youtube, feel free to contact her directly (email below). She is currently open to suggestions, but is also looking for helping researching physics concepts, having people be in here videos, in addition to script writing. This is a fun way to learn about physics outside your classes so I definitely suggest emailing her!

On February 20, UWIP hosted a talk with UCSD Professor Vivek Sharma on the search for the Higgs boson particle. Professor Sharma is an experimental particle physicist who is currently involved in the search for the Higgs boson at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland. By smashing ultra-energetic protons and examining the resulting sub-atomic debris, he attempts to understand the fundamental constituents of this universe. After the talk, UWIP members had an opportunity to interact with professor Sharma at a personal level at Regent’s Pizza.
