Nuclear warhead dismantling & the first day of break

Bright and early on the first day of Thanksgiving break, Shani Peretz, Ph.D. brought 12 Peddie juniors over to the Princeton Research Symposium at Princeton University.

While others are hopefully sleeping in on this first morning of break, I'm sitting in a lecture room at Princeton with 12 Peddie juniors from the EXP Science Research Program. We are spending today learning at the Princeton Research Symposium.

So far we have heard talks about nuclear warhead dismantling, why stressed bacteria choose to self-destruct, engineering research to avoid bridge fires, and how school size affects competition among students. We have been asked to help judge both the talks and the poster session, so the students are busy taking notes!
