More than 60 people, including two members of Congress and dozens of staffers, turned out for a special one-hour briefing on the critical role of networking in advancing scientific discovery in academia, industry and national laboratories. The July 28 session was organized by the lab’s Government and Community Relations Office. More>
Sartaj Singh Baveja, a summer student working for ESnet, has helped develop an award-winning Android app at a recent hackathon. Named “Safrzone,” the app is designed to help improve safety for women and girls. Anyone can use this application to report any women-related incident that one witnesses. More>
