Plasma Academy

This summer the Plasma Academy program will be offered August 15th – 19th. Plasma Academy is a one week course that is meant to teach middle and high school teachers about plasma and equip them with curriculum to share with their students. We will explore multiple different aspects of plasmas and conduct hands on experiments to demonstrate these properties. Teachers will leave with a new understanding of plasma, curriculum that they can add to their courses of instruction, and materials to teach this curriculum with.

We will be offering opportunities online and in person. The in person component will be offered on the University of Wisconsin Madison campus. To cope with the online component we will be video conferencing and participants will receive kits that will be used to conduct experiments and witness the science in your own home. To participate please apply below, and we encourage you to talk to other teachers that would also be interested in participating. We hope to see you this Summer!
