BSRC Student Travel Fundraiser

2 Oct 2017 | SciTech

Berkeley SETI Research Center is holding a fundraiser to raise $7000 to send our student interns to conferences to present their work. We’ve been working with some great students at Berkeley SETI, and we’re optimistic that some of them will become the scientists and engineers who lead the field in future and maybe even find the signal we’re searching for. In the meantime they have been doing amazing work and we’d like to send them to academic conferences to present their results, and for their own professional development. If you would like to help with this effort, we are running a crowdfunding campaign at https://crowdfund.berkeley.edu/SETItravel - every donation counts! We also have some fun perks including the chance to ask questions to members of the Berkeley SETI team, and to attend a party in our lab. Although this does not directly benefit SETI@home (our annual fundraiser will starread more »
