A group from the Princeton University chapter of the Materials Research Society attended the 2017 Spring MRS meeting in Phoenix from April 17 to 19. We all had an amazing experience engaging with the world of materials research and taking in the opportunities to come as we continue our careers as materials scientists. The talks we attended covered topics like perovskite solar cells, the roles of oxides in electronic materials properties, and the promises of magnesium in energy storage. At the chapters lunch, we got to interact with peers, both graduate and undergraduate, from across the world and gained valuable insight into the events we, as a chapter, can bring to Princeton. None of this would have been possible without the support of Sandra Lam and Prof. Craig Arnold, and we thank them for a sunny week in Arizona!
