Educator Workshop: Phriendly Physics Teacher Workshops

Description:Phriendly Physics is a Next Generation Science Standards infused physical science program for K-5 teachers. Participants in the workshop may bring their students on a free field trip to the Lederman Science Center.

Phriendly Physics is a program designed for participants to learn through facilitated exploration of a series of simple, open-ended experiments and through discussion and reflection with a master teacher and Fermilab scientists. Through this process participants gain a deeper understanding of concepts, new approaches in teaching and learning, and will receive new equipment and supplies in order to continue exploration of these concepts with their students. Topics include force & motion, electricity & magnetism, and light & heat.
