                                               What is QuarkNet?
• Partners high school teachers with particle physicists who act as
  mentors.
• Teachers get summer research experience.
• Centers are established where additional teachers, students and
  physicists are included in the program.
• Program is funded by US NSF/MPS, NSF/ESIE and DOE
    – Preliminary program 1998; Full program 1999 +
• Up to 60 centers are planned over a 5-year period.
• The proponents for this idea and project:
    –    M. Bardeen (Fermilab Education Office)
    –    R. M. Barnett (LBNL, Atlas Education Coordinator)
    –    O. Keith Baker (Hampton Univ)
    –    R. Ruchti (Notre Dame, USCMS Education Coordinator)

• Provide coherence to a national program of education and outreach.
    – Strength in numbers and better planning. Affiliation with major projects.
• Provide resources and contacts over a sustained period of time.
    – Continuity over several years for impact and evaluation.
• Attract teachers, students and the public to the excitement of physics at
  the energy frontier.
    – Building a community with scientific literacy and interest.
    – Sustaining power.
• For successful US federal funding for a project, an education and
  outreach component is required.
    – A variety of strategies are required to accomplish a successful program.

• QuarkNet, RET, REU, REHSS, + other initiatives serve to:
   – Advance scientific literacy and culture in society.
   – Provide a research emersion experience for teachers and students.
   – Take a long term focus on societal needs as well as experimental
     needs.
• Large scale physics and technical projects are a natural
  way to further these aims.
• We are definitely underway toward an exciting future of
  physics and associated educational opportunities.
