High School and Middle School Outreach Days

Outreach event

Twice a year the PSFC reaches out to High Schools (December) or Middle Schools (May) around Massachusetts, inviting one teacher and two students from each school to a spend a day at the Center. Through tours, talks and demonstrations, attendees learn about plasmas, their behavior, and their role in harnessing fusion energy. Students will have the opportunity to see how plasmas are confined, to perform hands-on demonstrations with electromagnetism, and to review the progress of MIT's plasma experiments, including the Alcator C-MOD tokamak.

For Fall 2020 plans are being made to create a virtual High School Outreach Day.
