What is QuarkNet?

QuarkNet is an educational program whose aim is to support science education in High Schools by establishing a nationwide teacher network. The Goal is to bring high school Students, Physics Teachers and Particle Physicists to learn together frontline physics. QuarkNet Centers provides an opportunities to establish a mentor relationship with local Universities Professor to work together on High Energy Physics (HEP) experiments and explore the world of Elementary Particle Physics. This program is funded by NSF (National Science Foundation) and the DOE (Department of Energy) Office of Science.
