Education Office: Marge Bardeen
The Fermilab Education Office is home to our K-12 programs. Our team of creative, dedicated people has a wonderful time developing and running K-12 education programs in strong collaboration with teachers and physicists. Working behind the scenes, we allow teachers to teach . . . most of the time . . . and physicists to do research . . . most of the time . . . so that their time working together on education programs is maximized. As a result we have a wealth of programs that utilize Lab resources to meet educators' needs.
Our programs were originally supported and run by Friends of Fermilab, a 501c3 that we established, and that I led under its newer name, Fermilab Friends for Science Education until May 2008. Now, the programs are conducted by the Education Office, but we still rely on FFSE support to develop new programs and provide the little things that make everyone feel welcome at Fermilab.
I have a wonderful family—husband Bill, a particle physicist, and grown children, Chuck, an atmospheric scientist, and Karen, a high school chemistry and physics teacher. In the rest of my life I enjoy reading, gardening, looking for my ancestors, traveling and more.
