Dr. Chuck De Leone, Dr. Ed Price, and Dr. Stephen Tsui, Department of Physics, participated in running a training workshop for K-12 teachers in anticipation of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The program was run by the K-12 Alliance and called the Cadre Program. In fact, Graham used to participate in this back when he was still faculty. They worked with two teachers to put together training materials for 34 5th grade science teachers from various locations around Southern California. The Physics Department supplied demos and expertise for the week long training at VIDA in Vista.
