As more and more schools and universities tried to return mid-2021 to in-person classes, the Rice/UH #QuarkNet center saw opportunities to return to an in-person workshop for high school teachers. With the support of the QuarkNet leadership and Rice's Physics & Astronomy department the very first "post" pandemic on-campus QuarkNet workshop took place in June 2021.
In the 2018/2019 academic year, the QuarkNet Center at Rice University/Univ. of Houston has rolled out a number of activities for high school teachers and students. Two such events took place at campus of Rice University, while two other events were done at two major high school campuses. We have also been working on expanding involvement from undergraduate students in our programs and have seen some of our Center’s teachers be selected for the Summer Programs at CERN and Fermilab.
