2002 Workshop

In 2002, 12 new teachers will join the QuarkNet program, coordinated and mentored
by the lead teachers and project scientists from the ATLAS group.
The teachers will participate in an intensive Workshop that combines lectures and lab activities (Agenda).
Teachers will become familiar with current and future experiments in particle physics
and other scientific work at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The focus of the activities will be on their extension into the high school physics classroom.
The lab work encompasses a wide range of topics, from radiation sensors to microelectronics to
mechanics, and provides ample stimulus to develop teaching examples and demonstrations for the classroom.

Program Dates
Wednesday, 26 June, 2002 - Friday, 12 July 2002 and two additional Saturdays during the school year.
Thursday, 4 July and Friday 5 July are excluded.

Teacher Stipend
All workshop participants will receive a stipend of $900 and $250 for classroom instructional materials.
