These young scientists are co-authors on 13 journal articles and 3 refereed conference proceedings. They have presented 62 posters and 22 oral talks at scientific meetings around the country, receiving 7 special prizes. Between them, they have collected 17 Rubendall awards, 4 Pelham awards and 5 Loh scholarships (our department’s highest student honors) as well as 2 awards from the Society of Physics Students. They have participated in 4 workshops and 20 internships or Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs) at institutions in the USA, Germany and The Netherlands. Twenty-one are or have been supported by summer research grants from the Fisher College of Science and Mathematics,  Maryland Space Grant Consortium or Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation and twelve have gone on to graduate school. One was interviewed on the Smithsonian television channel, another starred in a NASA outreach video, two have been invited to the headquarters of Wolfram Research to share their codes with the developers of Mathematica, and three contributed to the discovery of gravitational waves that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics.
