Events for Teachers
Summer teacher workshops are offered for teachers who want to expand and supplement their physics curriculum.
We also have an annual Physics Fair, where you can explore the inner workings of the UW- Madison Department of Physics.
Come see an annual Wonders of Physics show in February - it may spark new ideas for your classroom!
