The Teacher Research Academy (TRA) offers middle school, high school, and community college faculty a unique professional development experience through Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL). Due to the COVID-19 outbreak and the need for social distancing, this year LLNL will be offering free VIRTUAL TRA workshops. Participants will engage in Next Generation Science Standards- (NGSS-) aligned instruction in LLNL mission-related scientific disciplines through remote learning opportunities. Workshop time will consist of online classroom instruction and independent assignments. Participants will have presentations by LLNL scientists and engineers, virtual tours of LLNL Centers and engagement with other participants in real-time.
