On April 16 Brookhaven National Lab hosted about 120 graduating high school seniors, all top-achieving science, math, and engineering students from across the country who have been accepted to Stony Brook. The goal of the visit was to show them the research possibilities available at Brookhaven facilities—such as its Center for Functional Nanomaterials, National Synchrotron Light Source, and Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider—as a result of the close relationship between Stony Brook and Brookhaven.

During a tour, Laboratory scientists explained their work and the capabilities of each facility. The students also heard a talk on the Lab’s brain imaging program and met with Stony Brook students who have already blazed a trail by working on research projects at Brookhaven and Stony Brook.
