On April 19, 2018, HPCAT hosted Chicago-area High School girls for the Science Careers in Search of Women Conference (SCSW) at Argonne National Laboratory. The young women attend the conference to learn about the research conducted at the laboratory, to network with professional women scientists and engineers, and to learn about careers in science and technology. The students were given a presentation by Beamline Scientist Yue Meng on the basics of high pressure science, and the high pressure research conducted at HPCAT. They were given a tour of HPCAT facilities and the ID-B experiment station. The students asked thoughtful questions and held and examined a diamond anvil cell. HPCAT enjoys the opportunity to participate in S.T.E.M. outreach activities each year.
