Workshops for Teaching Quantum Physics

As part of our work in the development and dissemination of the New Model Course in Applied Quantum Physics, we have given several workshops at the national and regional level. Some of these have been done in collaboration with other research groups in the United States. The site is still under construction, and more information about workshops will be included soon.

If you would like us to give a workshop at your school, please contact Michael Wittmann.
