Ted Hodapp, leader of the APS Bridge Program, visited LLNL to explore collaborative initiatives with LLNL’s HED Science Center.

On December 11, 2018, LLNL hosted a visit from Ted Hodapp, senior advisor to the U.S. Department of Education for the American Physical Society (APS) and leader of the APS Bridge Program, which aims to increase the number of individuals from underrepresented groups who hold physics degrees.

As HED science is one of LLNL’s core missions and an essential research area for the Laboratory’s future workforce, HEDS Center representatives met with Hodapp to explore areas of collaboration between the Center and the APS Bridge Program.

The HEDS Center hosted Bridge Program students in 2018 and plans to host additional students in the summer of 2019.
