NEWTON Ask A Scientist

Argonne Education Outreach Council

Argonne’s mission is to lead the world in providing scientific and engineering solutions to the grand challenges of our time: sustainable energy, a healthy environment and a secure nation. In concert with the laboratory’s sustainable energy mission, the Sustainability Workshop for Middle School Teachers provides seminars by scientists, discussions, tours, hands-on activities, and group planning to grow the participant’s energy literacy and develop instructional materials for sustainability topics.


Sustainability Workshop For Middle School Teachers

Since this project exemplifies the innovation and commitment to sustainability that DOE likes to recognize, this program has been selected to receive a 2012 Department of Energy Sustainability Award on Thursday September 27 at the Office of Science in Washington DC.

The Visiting Faculty Program (VFP), formerly called Faculty and Student Teams (FaST), seeks to increase the research competitiveness of faculty members and their students at institutions historically underrepresented in the research community in order to expand the workforce vital to the Department of Energy (DOE) mission areas. As part of the program, selected university/college faculty members collaborate with DOE laboratory research staff on a research project of mutual interest. Faculty member participants may invite up to two students (one of which may be a graduate student) to participate in the research project.

The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 DOE National Laboratories. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects related to ongoing programs.
