WADC SCIPP Graduate students Jacob Pasner and Duncan Wood joined a group of 68 Particle Physicists from collaborations across the United States to advocate to Congress for continued support of the field. The diverse group included representatives from the USLUA, SLAC and Fermilab and was able to contact all 538 offices of Congress to deliver the funding ask of the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5).

SCIPP OutreachFriday, February 1, 2019: SCIPP Outreach in the QuarkNet Friday Flyer! Spotlight on the SCIPP University of California Santa Cruz QuarkNet Center SCIPP is the Santa Cruz Institute for Particle Physics, the particle physics research institute at the University of California, Santa Cruz. Their main work in QuarkNet in the past few years has been to run great ATLAS masterclasses. The "SCIPP center" is headed up by mentor Jason Nielsen and administrator Vicki Johnson. Teachers in the group participate in many ways, including those masterclasses. Last November, SCIPP center teacher Jonathan Rockman lead his students in World Wide Data Day.
