San Francisco State University



At SFSU, we are fortunate to have a strong community of women in physics and astronomy. WIPAA was founded in 2015 by a group of undergraduate and graduate students. We have recieved support from our entire department. We are committed to public outreach and seek to inspire women like us to pursue their interests in STEM, especially physics and astronomy.
