Programs: Summer Secondary Science Institutes

Description: The Summer Secondary Science Institutes are one week workshops on NGSS aligned science content, classroom experiments and techniques for high school teachers.

Biology: Expert teachers will present hands-on, NGSS aligned activities and proven classroom strategies with a study of major topics in biology. Topics of discussion will also include questioning skills and updating traditional lab activities to implement a student design component.

Physics: Create authentic science experiences by connecting your physics classroom to Fermilab! Expert teachers will lead discussion on a variety of physics topics with traditional lab equipment and computer-based data taking devices. Workshop content is connected to discussions with Fermilab scientists and engineers in addition to tours of experimental sites.

Chemistry: Align your chemistry instruction with the three dimensions of the Next Generation Science Standards! Master teachers will lead discussion and activities designed to engage students in the crosscutting concepts and science & engineering practices of the NGSS in order to teach high school chemistry content.
