Welcome to the Science Education Department at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL), where we combine the lab's core research activities with science education programs to create a center of excellence for students, teachers and the general public. We contribute to the training of the next generation of scientists and engineers, collaborate with K-12 teachers on ways to improve science teaching using an inquiry-based approach to learning, and improve the science literacy of the community at large. Join us!
