Teaching with Data

QuarkNet Workshop for High School Physics Teachers

9:00 am to 3:30 pm, July 29-31 2015
at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory

Teachers immersed themselves for three days at Fermilab with data from the Large Hadron Collider. The first two days they explored data from the CMS experiment to discover how to teach with data. The third day participants worked with scientists from Fermilab and the University of Chicago to look at research projects done by our QuarkNet students. Teachers developed a plan for leading students to the next level of data collection, interpretation, and explanation.

Active QuarkNet teachers meet annually to learn and share inquiry-based teaching methods for basic introductory physics concepts in a context of particle physics and astronomy. This excites students! Participants should expect to attend additional sessions throughout the school year.

More Information and schedule for the CMS Data Workshop on the first two days.
