|Ames Laboratory partnered with Science Bound to provide internships for two students in the Environment, Safety, Health and Assurance Department spring semester. Science Bound is Iowa State University's premier pre-college program designed to increase the number of ethnically diverse Iowa students pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM fields).|
Active for Life is a nationwide wellness program sponsored by the American Cancer Society. This 8-week voluntary program, which kicks off on Monday, April 4, encourages Ames Laboratory employees to begin and/or maintain an active, physically-fit lifestyle. Employees form wellness teams to set individual and team wellness goals.
The teams will compete against one another internally within the Ames Laboratory community AND as a whole against other U.S. Department of Energy Laboratories.
|Ames Laboratory scientists will play a key role in the Lightweight Materials National Lab Consortium, or LightMAT. The recently announced consortium consists of nine DOE national laboratories and will focus on developing and deploying lightweight materials for industry more quickly and at a fraction of current costs to strengthen U.S. manufacturing competitiveness.|
