LIGO Workshop for Science Educators – June 27 & 28

Join the LIGO (The Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) Science Education Center for a two-day workshop (June 27 & 28, 2019) focused on inquiry, motion, and energy using physical science interactives. You’ll learn about motion and energy from LIGO-Science Education Center staff — former teachers who have been trained by the San Francisco Exploratorium on inquiry methods and science education.

On day two of the workshop, attend a special guided field trip to the LIGO Science Education Center in Livingston – an experience not to be missed!

Completion of this workshop will qualify you for priority booking for your class for an extraordinary hands-on science field trip experience at the LIGO Science Education Center in Livingston, LA and financial support for bus transportation for your students. LIGO’s interactive displays are wonderfully designed to teach and motivate students!

Plus, teachers will receive a $200 stipend for successful completion of the workshop thanks to LIGO.  Note: teachers must attend both workshop days to receive the stipend.  A limited number of seats are a available.
