Missed us? The new Friday Flyer assigned frequency of 8 x 10-7 Hz (in the Way-Long-Wave 4 x 1015 m band) on the newsletter spectrum means we have been away from your desk for two weeks. Our next flyer will come out on February 26.
Spotlight on International Masterclasses
Your friends at 1 Friday Flyer Plaza are planning to try out a new frequency of publication for the flyer, your one trusted source of news aside from the others. Specifically, we're looking at a frequency near 8 x 10-7 Hz; in other words, once every two weeks. Our next flyer will come out on February 12 and will continue on an every-other-Friday basis. There will be no change in subscription pricing. :-)
Spotlight on Randy Ruchti
Once upon a time, a few folks decided that what the particle physics community in the U.S. needed was an outreach and education program that can directly engage high school physics teachers in professional development to bring authentic scientific investigations to their students. One of these founders of QuarkNet was Randy Ruchti of the University of Notre Dame.
Spotlight on the Year
We do not need to go over the difficulties of the year equal to 22(5)(101). Let's talk about some highlights of the progress we made.
Spotlight on the Virginia QuarkNet Center . . .
. . . which is not to be confused with the Virginia Tech QuarkNet Center. The latter is based at Virginia Tech while the former, the subject of our Spotlight, is based at the College of William and Mary and George Mason University. Got it? Good.
There will be no Friday Flyer this coming Friday (November 27), as we'll be on Thanksgiving break. We'll pick it up again on December 4. Have a great Thanksgiving!
