Student-Oriented Programming at Convention

By Alexa Lopez

Are you a student attending the convention this year in Washington D.C. and trying to sort through the website to map out what talks and programs you're going to attend? While the website can be complicated and you may be overwhelmed over the variety of programs that are being offered, I have outlined some of the APAGS- and Science Student Council-sponsored programming that may be of particular interest to Division 28 students.
