Reflecting on my trip
I would like to thank Quarknet for this amazing experience! I learned so much at the ISE workshop through the lectures on astronomy and the differences of the European approach to inquiry. It was very interesting talking with European, and the American, teachers about the different approaches to teaching we all make. As American teachers, we take for granted all of the resources that we have readily available to them. Talking with one Greek teacher, he didn't touch any lab equipment until he reached the university! One very neat experience during the workshop was a virtual tour of CERN through a teleconference. A big take away for me was the friendships and connections that I made throughout the week. I am so grateful for being able to participate in this week!
