The Education Office: Beauty and Charm Teacher Workshop

Beauty and Charm
How do you study something too small to see? Beauty and Charm is an engaging, exciting, exploratory physical science program featuring themes such as "Methods of Science," "Seeing the Unseen" and the "Human Element of Science." Activites help your students understand how to learn about things they can't see and expose them to the world of particles physics. Each free field trip includes a Q&A session with a Fermilab scientist. To bring students to Fermilab, teachers need to take a one-week summer workshop at the Lederman Science Center.
About the Teacher Workshop
"Loved all the labs and new ideas."

"Instructors are very knowledgeable and professional, extremely organized and offered students many helpful suggestions; this is the BEST staff development class I have taken in 25 years of instructions."

"I can't speak highly enough about this program or Fermilab; I will continue to stay as involved with Fermilab and/or its resources as much as possible, and spread the word to anyone and everyone who will listen!"

About the Field Trip

"I want them to hear about the philosophy of everyone being significant. That's important for them to understand, especially at this age; that they have a voice, that their ideas are important, and when they come here, it's the same message that I give them in the classroom."

"(Students) actually get to see that people are really doing science."

"The scientist … was fabulous. We appreciated the fact that he did not 'talk down' to our students. As a result, we saw them blossom on their trip and really step outside their comfort zones, asking thought-provoking questions. Our 7th Grade students have been visiting Fermi for many years, and this year was particularly enjoyable. The docents were patient, knowledgeable, and pleasant. Thank you so much for a great experience."
