APS March Meeting 2020
The in-person APS March Meeting 2020 taking place in Denver during March 02-06, 2020 was canceled in the last minute out of Covid-19 concerns for the well-being of the scientific community as well as the population of the city of Denver and the state of Colorado. Nevertheless, well-planned logistics by the physics community and the APS leadership, allowed attendants to share their findings, presenting their research works to their peers, and continuing the work towards the advancement of science. Given the historical and on-going under-representation of students of color in science and technology at all academic levels, there is a need to build opportunities for our students to develop scientific skills and mastery by getting involved in research. This report summarizes undergraduate-friendly research in the field of Soft Matter that I found presented in this virtual APS March Meeting 2020. Also, I include other interesting findings that can be useful for serving our students, including lectures on Physics Education Research and other resources for Minority Serving Institutions.
