A select group of 24 high school science teachers from across the country will share the singular opportunity to bring the high-energy physics frontier back to their classrooms through the QuarkNet teacher training workshop July 1-6 at the Snowmass Conference Center, during the three-week conference “Snowmass 2001: A Summer Study on the Future of Particle Physics.”
Physicists, often regarded as having their heads in the clouds, will take their stereotype literally during an aerial experiment in the early morning of Sunday, July 8 at Snowmass, Colorado when they lift off in a hot-air balloon to re-create the 1912 discovery of cosmic rays by Austrian physicist Victor Hess.
The scientists and science educators taking part in “Snowmass 2001: A Summer Study on the Future of Particle Physics” have made children a priority in the three-week conference, June 30-July 21 at the Snowmass Conference Center.
“Snowmass 2001” will bring more than 500 of the country’s leading physicists together in the Rocky Mountains to look beyond the horizon.
