SCI-ED Day 2016

Spend the day at Brookhaven National Laboratory where cutting-edge research abounds. Meet the scientists, see the facilities, and discover the latest and greatest scientific innovations. Learn how to engage students at every level by incorporating current research topics into your curriculum.

Educators choose a workshop that suits their grade level and/or interest. In addition to the workshops, participants have the opportunity to visit one of Brookhaven’s state of the art research facilities or attend an informal information session to learn more about educational opportunities offered by the Office of Educational Programs. Participants can make their selection during the morning registration on November 8th.

The workshop titles and grade levels are as follow:

  • Gaining Research Experience in the Environment (Elementary)
  • Astrophysics: Telescopes, Optics and the Sun (Secondary)
  • Scientific Computing Using the BNL Cloud (Secondary)
  • Explorations in Wildlife Populations (Secondary)

Registration is through My Learning Plan. Participants will select one workshop session for the day. The fee is $22.00 US per participant which includes continental breakfast and lunch. Participation certificates will be distributed at the conclusion of the event.
