* A free residential summer camp for high school students (both sites)
and science teachers (MSU only).
PAN is an outreach program at two world leading
nuclear physics laboratories: Nuclear
Science Laboratory located on the campus of the University
of Notre Dame and the National
Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory located on the
campus of Michigan State University. It is run by the Joint
Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics - Center for the Evolution of the Elements (JINA-CEE) and either
NSL or NSCL faculty and staff. We welcome students who have completed
at least one year of high school and science teachers (primarily high
school physics or chemistry, though others have found the program
useful). The program introduces participants to the fundamentals
of the extremely small domain of atomic nuclei and its connection
to the extremely large domain of astrophysics and cosmology.
Students must complete a pre-application, follow directions for 2 teacher recommendations to be submitted, and complete an application. We must have all 4 items by the deadline in order to be considered. There will be NO exceptions for any late materials.
