Nobel Week Tour 2023

A group of NSHSS members traveled to Stockholm, Sweden in December, 2023 to celebrate our organization's co-founder, Claes Nobel, and his family's history with the Nobel Prize Ceremony. Join us next year for our return to Sweden!

During the Nobel Week tour, we had a chance to:

  • Experience the Nobel legacy first-hand
  • Explore Stockholm, Sweden: a world hub for sustainability and STEM research
  • Learn about Swedish society and culture
  • Expand our horizons and independence through international travel

This tour was sold out so please be sure to keep an eye out for the 2024 tour registration for this once-in-a-lifetime educational experience!
