Beauty and Charm
A teacher-developed unit of hands-on experiments enables midlevel students to explore ways scientists study the subatomic world.
Classes completing the unit may visit Fermilab and meet with a scientist.

Fermilab educational programs and resources for educators, students, visitors and
Fermilab LInC Online
In this online course, participants develop online classroom units in which the Internet supports engaged learning.
Students explore the science and technology of Fermilab by playing games that are online versions of the Quarks to Quasars exhibits.
Lederman Science Center
The home of K-12 education programs includes Quarks to Quasars, interactive exhibits that explain the science and technology of
Fermilab, and the Teacher Resource Center.
Particles and Prairies
A teacher-developed instructional unit introduces midlevel students to the tall grass prairie and provides an opportunity for them to
conduct field studies in the Fermilab prairie.
This physical science program includes field trips to the Lederman Science Center for elementary students and a professional development program for teachers.
The Prairie - Our Heartland
A teacher-developed instructional unit introduces intermediate students to the tall grass prairie and provides an opportunity for them to study the ecosystem first-hand. The program encourages students to become stewards of the prairie.
All the Fermilab education programs are listed here.
High school students and teachers learn physics by collaborating with particle physicists on projects that range from classroom
activities to experiments that probe the nature of our universe.
Saturday Morning Physics
The program furthers the understanding and appreciation for modern physics aimed at high school students, whether or not they are interested in pursuing science as a career.
The Lederman Science Center offers a variety of informal classes for students and families throughout the year on
Saturdays and during summer vacation.
In this online instructional unit students answer research questions about native and reconstructed prairies using quadrat data they
and other students have collected.
Teacher Resource Center
Educators have access to a large preview collection of K-12 science, mathematics and technology materials and support for
professional development and may ask for assistance in enhancing their classroom programs.
Topics in Modern Physics
Teacher-developed classroom materials introduce students to particle physics within the curriculum of a standard introductory high school or college physics course.
