a. TeachQuantum, a professional development opportunity for high school teachers, is coming to UW-Madison! The Department of Physics is excited to start accepting applications for our first cohort of TeachQuantum teachers. A virtual information session will be hosted on March 8, 2022, at 6pm, and applications are due on April 8, 2022. Please share this information far and wide with your high school teacher connections! Questions about the program or applying can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
b. Interested in adding quantum science to your curricula but not sure where to begin? Participate in QuanTime— a program designed to offer teachers free classroom activities that they can do without any pre-requisite quantum knowledge. QuanTime is scheduled to coincide with World Quantum Day on April 14, 2022, and we hope to have thousands of students doing something quantum throughout April and May. Activities are available for grades 6-12, though they can be adapted for older and younger groups. Please register if you are interested and share amongst your middle and high school connections!

Thank you in advance for your consideration, and please let me know if you have any questions!
There are many eager hemp stakeholders in Wisconsin that hope hemp will provide profitability while creating more environmentally sustainable products. This panel discussion will bring together hemp industry leaders across a diverse set of disciplines including hemp processing, paper production, hemp textiles, and hemp building materials to discuss their successes and lessons learned. We hope the knowledge gained will provide timely insights for industry stakeholders regarding the feasibility of various hemp-derived products in Wisconsin and beyond.
