Lightsource – Science Teacher Pro-D

From Tracy Walker via Marcello Pavan

The Canadian Light Source has developed a wonderful Pro-D opportunity for teachers at their facility in Saskatoon (funding available for travel and accommodations) and they are putting out a call to interested teachers.

Here’s Tracy’s description

The purpose of the workshop is to provide information about how Canada’s only synchrotron works, with examples of research relevant for multiple science curricula. While directed primarily to classroom teachers, informal science educators have also attended with collaborative projects developed as a result. In addition I am considering trying to open this program to some post-secondary projects. We provide opportunities for educators to network directly with scientists as well as gain experience conducting experiments. This workshop is the first step in opening doors for students to participate in a unique program that enables students to conduct synchrotron experiments.
