MITCHELL INSTITUTE PHYSICS ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM (MIPEP)
Program Dates: June 14-25, 2021
The curriculum focuses on clarifying fundamental physics concepts through problem-solving, hands-on demonstrations, and laboratory experiences.
The format will be virtual via Zoom, including lectures, discussions, group work, and demonstrations. If on-campus activities become allowed, we will offer the possibility of in-person labs, demonstrations, and tours during the second week of class for those who want to attend. Accommodations and meal cards will be provided to them. All activities will be still streamed online, except for tours.
The MIPEP Program is free!
All Program events and instruction are free for teachers
Up to 40 high school physics teachers are selected from a pool of candidates with little to no physics background, e.g. with 0-2 physics classes in college.
Participants receive 80 credit hours of Continuing Professional Education, including 34 credit hours of G/T curriculum and 6 credit hours of G/T annual update.

We examined the impact of the MIPEP Summer Institute, including changes in participants’ confidence in teaching physics concepts. The mixed-methods study included pre-and post-perception surveys, post-session topic surveys, and participants’ final reflections.
High school teacher support from Col. Schade ’67 in memory of Michael E. Griffith, DVM ’78 is gratefully acknowledged.
