Dr. Woo was one of 200 chosen nationally to represent Virginia at the 2017 Research Teachers Conference to be held in Washington D. C. The Society for Science & the Public chose teachers to attend this event from October 13 to 15, 2017. During the conference, teachers will have the opportunity to share experiences, tips, and practices together. They will also handle various challenges to better assist students in the independent science research community. This conference is supported by Regeneron with which the teachers will also learn more about the Society and the Regeneron Science Talent Search.
