Physicists Inspiring the Next Generation (PING) is a collaboration between the National Society of Black Physicists (NSBP), the National Radio Astronomy Observatory (NRAO), and Associated Universities Inc. (AUI).


The program supports two White House initiatives: My Brother's Keeper which is working to address the education needs of young men of color, and a second effort to promote interest in science among girls.


Launched in 2014, the program focuses on multiple levels of the physics and astronomy pipeline, and includes a two week summer program designed to expose middle and high school students to the fields of physics and astronomy, and an eight-ten week program designed to cultivate interest in physics and (radio) astronomy research for undergraduate students.
