School Visit

Classroom Visits

JINA-CEE scientists and students travel to regional public schools to visit classrooms. For grades 2-6, we bring Art 2 Science activities to the classroom and guest lecture on careers in physics. For students who have learned about the periodic table, we use magnetic marbles to teach nuclear science through activities and demonstrations. JINA-CEE students often share their personal college experiences and the positive impact that higher education has made in their lives. Email jinaout@nd.edu for more information or to schedule a visit.
