Dr. Pitonyak’s Research Leads to Open-Access Article and Animation for High School Students

During the past few months, Dr. Daniel Pitonyak, assistant professor of physics, worked with Futurum Careers to create an open-access article and animation regarding his nuclear physics research.  The project was made possible by funding from Dr. Pitonyak’s National Science Foundation (NSF) grant.  Futurum is a free online resource and magazine aimed at encouraging 14–19 year-olds worldwide to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and medicine (STEM), and social sciences, humanities, and the arts for people and the economy (SHAPE).
