Title: National QuarkNet Program

Abstract

The agreement covers the joint administration of the National QuarkNet Program by Fermilab, on behalf of DOE, and Notre Dame, on behalf of the National Science Foundation. QuarkNet has established centers at universities and national laboratories conducting research in particle physics across the United States. Mentor physicists and physics teachers collaborate to bring cutting-edge physics to high school classrooms. QuarkNet offers research experiences for teachers and students, teacher workshops and sustained follow-up support. Through these activities, teachers enhance their knowledge and understanding of scientific research and transfer this experience to their classrooms, engaging students in both the substance and processes of contemporary physics research. The QuarkNet Program has been helping to improve science education in high schools across the U.S. and helping to develop America’s technological workforce.
