PAN is an outreach program at the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory (NSCL)—one of the world's leading nuclear physics laboratories—located on the campus of Michigan State University. It is run by the Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics (JINA), NSCL faculty and staff. We welcome students who have completed at least one year of high school and teachers (primarily high school physics or chemistry, though others have found the program useful).
The PAN experience:
"Not only did I learn a ton about nuclear physics and what you guys do there in your lab, but I had a really good time... I can't thank you all enough for supporting science education in this way."
“You did a GREAT job! (and I've been to a lot of workshops)”
“ I only wish there were a PAN II to spend more time learning more and experimenting at the NSCL."
"The program is ridiculously more stimulating, more fun, and more helpful than any other training I've ever had as a teacher. Outstanding!!”"
Nearly 100% of students and teachers at PAN over the past several years would "Probably" or "Definitely" recommend the PAN program to their peers.
