Division of Plasma Physicists: Plasma Science Teacher's Day
(October 18, 2022) Spokane, WA

Plasma Science Teacher Day is an event of free professional development workshops for teachers to learn about plasma physics and fusion research and ways to incorporate plasma lessons and activities in the classroom. These "real-life" topics, seldom found in conventional classroom discussions or in school textbooks, provide tools to help teachers inspire students to understand the research challenges of plasma science and related applications. The workshop presentations, handouts, and classroom resource materials are designed especially for middle and high school teachers and targeted to satisfy state and national standards.

Ambassador-led Workshops
