For Educators

LIGO is committed to providing quality educational experiences to the public, students, and especially to science teachers everywhere. LIGO outreach is particularly interested in helping teachers integrate modern science into their classrooms so today's students are prepared for today's careers and to understand 21st century science, such as that being explored at LIGO's observatories.There are many ways in which we are furthering this mission. If you are an educator wanting to get a better grasp on modern science, or to find ways of introducing modern physics into your curriculum (while adhering to NGSS requirements), LIGO can help you accomplish those goals.
