STEM, NGSS and Fermilab

DuPage educators visited Fermilab to be awed by particle physics! A tour of the neutrino experimental facilities was led by experts. The teachers were challenged to integrate this new learning—about the hunt for neutrinos as well as the practices the scientists, engineers and technicians use in that hunt—into their classrooms.

Check out Neutrino Physics at Fermilab and then browse our pictures.
