Educator Workshop: Beauty and Charm Teacher Workshop

Description: How do you study something too small to see? Beauty and Charm is both an exploratory physical science program including a Fermilab field trip for midlevel students and a professional development workshop for teachers.

Beauty & Charm provides students with the opportunity to experience authentic science by using scientific practices and crosscutting concepts from the Next Generation Science Standards. Themes include "Methods of Science," "Seeing the Unseen," and the "Human Element". After attending the workshop and teaching the unit, participants may bring their students to Fermilab for a field trip to the Lederman Science Center and a special guided tour of Wilson Hall, the Linear Accelerator building, and the Main Control Room. Each field trip also includes a question-and-answer session with a Fermilab scientist.
