This event will take place Saturday September 18 and Sunday September 19, 2021.
Introduce yourself to particle physics and bring that knowledge back to your classroom!
It's a good artifact for Domain 4: Professionalism.
No prior exposure to the subject is needed.
It will take place at Explora (1701 Mountain Rd NW, Albuquerque).
Every participating teacher will receive $100 per diem and a certificate of participation.
Please bring an internet-capable device such as a laptop/Chromebook/iPad for the hands-on activities. If you are not able to bring such a device, we will pair you with someone who brings one.
This event is sponsored by QuarkNet@UNM.
