What is QuarkNet?
Quarknet is an initiative to involve
high-school teachers and their students in
state-of-the-art research that seeks
to resolve some of the mysteries about the
structure of matter and the
fundamental forces of nature.
It is supported by the National Science Foundation and the U.S. Department of Energy.
|QuarkNet provides an opportunity for high school science teachers to participate in frontier physics research. Teachers will be integrated into a research group in elementary particle physics at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. QuarkNet is a nationwide network that also provides opportunities for participating science teachers to exchange knowledge and experience with their peers.|
In 2001, the first year of the QuarkNet program at Berkeley Lab, three
lead teachers joined the ATLAS
group at Berkeley Lab, to learn about and work on the
In July 2002, 12 new teachers joined the QuarkNet program, coordinated and mentored by the lead teachers and project scientists from the ATLAS group. The teachers participated in an intensive Workshop that combined lectures and lab activities The lab work included a wide range of topics, from radiation sensors to microelectronics to mechanics, and provided ample stimulus to develop teaching examples and demonstrations for the classroom.
