“By Us, For Us”: First Queer Science Conference Creates Connections

Forty-three high school students and 13 members of the UConn community came together to celebrate science – and themselves – in the first Queer Science Conference, held Saturday, June 11th, in Storrs.

The one-day, volunteer-driven event connected the students with faculty, staff, and graduate and undergraduate students at UConn who work in STEM disciplines, with the goal of supporting Connecticut youth while offering state-of-the-art laboratory experiences and opportunities for hands-on science demonstrations.
