Fermilab Office of Education and Public Engagement: Online Teacher Workshops

Engage your classrooms with Fermilab Science!

Elementary School Teachers (K-5)

Phriendly Physics

Phriendly Physics focuses on the classroom. Participants not only learn concepts, but also start to think like scientists. All of the activities from the workshop can be done in the classroom, many with inexpensive and/or household materials. The most important thing participants will do is learn how to help students frame and explore their own questions, like real scientists.

Grade Levels K-2: Topics covered are Force & Motion, Light & Color, Structure & Properties of Matter.

July 19-20 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM US Central Time

Grade Levels 3-5: Topics covered are Force & Motion, Light & Color, Structure & Properties of Matter, and Electricity & Magnetism.

July 21-23 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM US Central Time

Middle School Teachers (6-8)

Beauty and Charm at Fermilab

How do scientists work? How can we study things we can't even see? Beauty & Charm is an activity-based program for middle schoolers. Beauty & Charm provides students with authentic experiences using scientific practices and cross-cutting concepts from the Next Generation Science Standards.

July 12-15 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM US Central Time

Energy and Ecosystems: Prairie, Water, and Woods

Energy and Ecosystems (E&E) features ecosystem services, engineering components, and field studies where students take scientific data. This new program provides students with authentic experiences using scientific practices and crosscutting concepts from the Next Generation Science Standards and Common Core Language Arts and Math.

July 26-30 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM US Central Time

High School Teachers (9-12)

Summer Secondary Physics Institute: Mechanics

Develop your skills in teaching different aspects of Mechanics. Through interactive experiences, discussion, and demonstration, we will help you build a solid foundation for teaching physics in the classroom. Participants will have an opportunity to learn from Fermilab staff and virtually tour selected Fermilab sites.

July 12-15 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM US Central Time

Summer Secondary Physics Institute: Electricity & Magnetism

Develop your skills in teaching different aspects of Electricity and Magnetism. Solidify your foundations for teaching electricity & magnetism through interactive activities, discussions, and demonstrations that you can apply directly to the classroom. Meet with Fermilab staff and take virtual tours to learn about how the concepts of electricity and magnetism are used to run some of the most powerful particle accelerators in the world.

July 19-22 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM US Central Time
