I really liked hearing the engineers talk towards the end of the day. They seemed so "human" and had a great approach to their work. Everyone seemed to communicate between departments really well.

History. 1999. Quarknet was established in 1999 and originally located at the University of Iowa as well as Iowa State University. The first two physics teachers to be involved in the project were Peter Bruecken from Bettendorf High School and Jeff Dilks from Ames High School.

I think I will show the device to my 9th graders on the fist day of school to get them asking questions, and then refer back to it as we dive deeper into the material.
