Hands-on physics programs for K-12 students and teachers

Topics: K-12 education physics

Beyond her research, Chandrasekhar is passionate about education at the university level, as well as at the elementary and secondary levels. To this effect, over the years she has spearheaded a number of hands-on physical science programs for K-12 students and teachers to learn about force, motion, and energy. Some of those programs include Saturday Scientist, Exploring Physics, the Summer Teacher Institutes, and Physics First.
