Middle-School Teachers: Bring Students to Tour MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center, June 7

The MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center invites middle-school teachers to bring two outstanding students for the Center’s annual Outreach Day, June 7.  The event will discuss plasmas, harnessing fusion energy, large magnets, and sources of intense microwave and millimeter-wave power.  Students will observe plasmas in a glow discharge tube, perform hands-on demonstrations with superconductivity, and see MIT’s tokamak, the Alcator C-MOD.  The program begins at 9AM and goes to 3PM, when there will be an optional information session and tour of MIT.  Bring a lunch.  Registration is required by May 17.
