Our mission is to bring Modern Physics to all schools in Northwest Indiana. To encourage students to discover and become true scientist all while interacting with some of the worlds most renown modern physicists.
A small QuarkNet center in Northwest Indiana.
PNW QuarkNet Center Summer Workshop: "Computation in the Classroom"
PNW is hosting a free professional development workshop for high school teachers from June 27-30 at PNW’s campus in Hammond, Indiana. Organized by the PNW Center for High Energy Physics and supported by the QuarkNet organization, the focus of the workshop will be incorporating computational thinking and particle physics concepts in the classroom. Workshop topics will include:
PNW Quarknet Center 2022 Workshop Annual Report
Summer 2022 Workshop
- Produced a week long curriculum
- Students designed a long term water shielding study for CRMD's
- Created a new logo for the PNW Center for High Energy Physics
- Created a poster for the QuarkNet Center
A place holder for the intern materials and research project during the 2022-2023 school year.
