TEACHERS' CONFERENCES

Teachers' Conferences

The KITP hosts an exciting, one-day Teachers’ Conference each year, held in conjunction with an on-going program, designed to introduce high school science teachers to the latest discoveries and ideas. Leading scientists describe recent research and interact informally with the teachers. Attendance is very competitive for the approximately 120 teachers who participate from all over the country.

TEACHER IN RESIDENCE

Teacher in Residence

The KITP will host up to four high-school teachers, each for 3 weeks, in summer 2016. The visiting researchers are provided offices and the KITP becomes their home away from home for the duration of their stay.

HIGH SCHOOL PHYSICS ENRICHMENT PROGRAMS

High School Physics Enrichment Programs

How can you relate topics at the far frontiers of physics to students' everyday experience in their physics classes? The KITP High School Enrichment Program (HSEP) provides opportunities for KITP postdocs and graduate fellows to present cutting-edge concepts in physics to local high school physics classes.
