What is Science Teacher Day?
Science Teacher Day is a day of workshops for middle and high school teachers where they can learn about plasma physics research and pedagogy. The teachers will meet and talk with research physicists from research centers, laboratories, academia, and industry. The workshop presentations, handouts, and resource materials are designed especially for middle and high school teachers. Be sure to sign up early for workshops (or the Plasma Science Expo) to insure your spot. While we strive to accommodate all requests, teachers registering later run the risk of not getting their requested workshops or Expo slots as particular ones fill up quickly!
 
Science Teacher Day begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, November 6, 2018.
