Education & Outreach

Welcome to the Syracuse University High Energy Physics Group’s site for Educational Outreach! We are engaged in several outreach activities, and we are a member of QuarkNet. We are dedicated to bringing the excitement and wonder of Particle Physics to our community. Here interested teachers, students and the general public can find useful educational resources related to Particle Physics.

Undergraduate Research: In addition the the resources below, we invite students interested in research in our group to contact us. Undergraduates are very welcome! If you’d like to have a glimpse of some of the projects that our undergraduates have participated in, please check this page out!
