The Mitchell Institute for Fundamental Physics and Astronomy is committed to excellence in physics education in Texas, and is excited to announce its inaugural program for new and cross-over high school physics teachers. Participating teachers will receive in-depth, standards-based training from professors and master teachers during this two week program. In addition, participants will enjoy complimentary meals and lodging while staying at the Mitchell family's Cook's Branch Conservancy. The program will also include tours of the Mitchell Institute as well as the Physics Department facilities at Texas A & M University.
