What s quarknet l.jpg
What’s QuarkNet ?

  • QuarkNet is an Educational program whose

    aim is to support science education in High Schools

    by establishing a nationwide teacher network.

  • Goal: Bring high school Students, Physics Teachers and Particle Physicists to learn together frontline physics.

  • QuarkNet Centersprovides an opportunities to establish a mentor relationship between with local Universities Professor towork together on

  • High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments and

  • explore the world of Elementary Particle Physics

  • QuarkNet: a nationwide Educational program.

    [~60 Universities and National HEP Lab across de US]

funded by NSF and DOE
