Educator Workshop: Summer Secondary Physics Institutes - Waves, Sound, and Optics
Description: The Summer Secondary Science Institutes are one- or two-week workshops on science content and classroom experiments and techniques for high school teachers. None is a prerequisite for any other.
Master teachers will lead discussion and exploration of wave mechanics and effective pedagogy and laboratory expe-riences for use in participants' own classrooms. Laboratory experiments will include work with both traditional equipment and computer-based data-taking devices. In addition, par-ticipants will have an opportunity to learn from Fermilab physicists and tour selected Fer-milab sites. This institute will be especially useful for new teachers and teachers teaching out-of field.
Grades: 9 - 12
Graduate credit: 2 semester hours can be arranged.
ISBE recertification: 5 CEUs
