2019 SULI One Week Course Group.

During the week of June 10th-14th 2019, students accepted in the Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program and other undergraduate intenship programs, will participate in an intensive course on plasma physics at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory, taught by world renowned plasma scientists from all over the country.

The lectures will be streamed online in real time, and will become available below afterwards.

Live Streaming

If you're planning on viewing the streaming lectures, please send us an email with some info (institution, major, etc), to help us track the reach. The stream can also be found in the Media Central site. If you have any questions during the talks, tweet them with the hashtag #SULI1WC and we may be able to ask them at the end of the talks.
