Teachers from nine schools in the Albuquerque and Los Lunas districts participated in a technical and historical tour of Los Alamos science heritage sites on Saturday, September 7, 2019, sponsored by QuarkNet@UNM.

QuarkNet is a long-term professional development program, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE). The program gives Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) teachers opportunities to encounter science outside the classroom to bring those experiences to their students inside the classroom.

QuarkNet@UNM, headed by Professor Sally Seidel, is one of 52 chapters across the US. that organize events for their region.
