SUMMER 2021

Light, Color, Sound and Waves with LIGO 
June 21 - 25, 2021

Join the LIGO (the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory) Science Education Center for a week-long virtual workshop -- June 21 - 25 -- focused on Light, Color, Sound and Waves using physical science interactives shipped directly to you!

You’ll learn about light, color, sound and waves from LIGO Education and Public Outreach staff — former teachers who have been trained by the San Francisco Exploratorium on inquiry methods and science education. Participants will discover hands-on activities they can deliver in the class room to engage their students using easily obtained, largely disposable materials.

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 for the 2021-2022 school year. LIGO’s interactive displays are wonderfully designed to teach and motivate students!

Plus, teachers will receive a $100 daily stipend for successful completion of the workshop thanks to LIGO. Notes: This material largely duplicates the virtual workshop conducted the summer of 2020. **Teachers must virtually attend all workshop days to receive the stipend. A limited number of seats are a available.
