Educator Workshop: Summer Secondary Physics Institute-Electricity and Magnetism

Description: The Summer Secondary Science Institutes are one- or two-week workshops on science content and classroom experiments and techniques for high school teachers. None is a prerequisite for any other.

This institute is one of four on physics content and classroom experiments and techniques for high school teachers. (None is a prerequisite for any other.) Master teachers will lead discussion and exploration of electricity and magnetism and effective pedagogy and laboratory experiences for use in participants' own classrooms. Laboratory experiments will include work with both traditional equipment and computer-based data-taking devices. In addition, participants will have an opportunity to learn from Fermilab physicists and tour selected Fermilab sites.
