OSU QuarkNet

QuarkNet is a long-term, research-based teacher professional development program jointly funded by the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Energy. It offers research experiences for teachers and students through workshops and Masterclasses. Together, teachers and students learn how the universe began, what are the basic forces of nature, what are the origins of mass, and how the scientists work to solve these problems. Here is the home page of the QuarkNet project.


QuarkNet Summer Workshop

Each summer OSU and OU take turns hosting a one-week QuarkNet summer workshop for Oklahoma high school science teachers.  In these workshops, teachers learn the basics of particle physics and related research at the worlds most advanced laboratories, as well as practial activities and exerciese that can be incorporated into their classrooms.  If you are interested in participating in a QuarkNet summer workshop, please contact Dr. Joe Haley (joseph.haley@okstate.edu) and Dr. John Stupak (john.stupak@ou.edu)!

ATLAS Masterclass

ATLAS Masterclasses are a one-day, hands-on, crash-course in experimental particle physics for high school students.  Students learn about particle physics in the morning and then in the afternoon they analyze actual collisions from the ATLAS detector.  The day ends with a video conference with Fermilab in which the students present the results of their analysis.
