Adopt-a-Physicist connects high school physics students to real physics graduates who are eager to share their stories. This gives students an insight into life as a scientist, as well as a space to enjoy and be curious about what they are learning.
Working in areas ranging from particle physics research to freelance writing, the participating physicists embody a huge range of careers, backgrounds, interests, and educational levels. Adopt-a-Physicist connects classes with the physicists of their choice through online discussion forums that are active for a set three-week period, and students should participate fully in these forums.
Each physicist can only be "adopted" by up to three classes, making lively, in-depth discussions possible, and teachers are encouraged to spend an hour in class going through the discussions each week. These discussions may be on physics, on career advice, or anything else the students are interested in.

The Columbia Model United Nations Conference and Exposition (CMUNCE) is the premier crisis conference for high school students in the United States. This year, CMUNCE XVIII will take place from January 17th to 20th, 2019 on the Columbia University Morningside Heights campus in New York City. The hallmark of CMUNCE is its fast-paced crisis committees, which allow students to react quickly and solve real world problems in international affairs. The conference offers a diverse blend of committees from different historical periods and regions of the world. The committees of CMUNCE are small, most under 25 delegates, to provide students with the opportunity to participate in debate and actively learn. CMUNCE's location also offers a variety of exciting outside-committee opportunities in the city of New York through our unique programming initiatives, from tours of the United Nations to private meetings with diplomats and the Saturday night social. Our conference is organized and run by over 100 talented Columbia students comprising the staff and secretariat, representing the most diverse of backgrounds, and all with a common spirit of professionalism and goal of promoting dialogue within the realm of international relations. We look forward to seeing you at CMUNCE XVIII!
