Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory's Science Education Department

Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory's Science Education Department We provide educational programs for undergraduate and community college students, K-12 teachers and students of all ages and backgrounds.

...where we combine the core research activities of the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) with science education programs to create a center of excellence for students, teachers and the general public. We contribute to the training of the next generation of scientists and engineers, collaborate with K-12 teachers on ways to improve science teaching using an inquiry-based approach to learning, and improve the science literacy of the community at large.

Mathematician John Horton Conway, a ‘magical genius’ known for inventing the ‘Game of Life,’ dies at age 82

About 30 years ago, Professor Conway gave a wonderful talk for our Science on Saturday lecture series. Those that were there may remember that he invited 6 students to come down on stage and hold the ends of ropes. Then he
made them dance around to form knots and used the knots to make points about his knot theories. #SciOnSat

John Horton Conway, a legendary mathematician who stood out for his love of games and for bringing mathematics to the masses, died on April 11 at age 82.
