An intensive physics program designed to help high school instructors teach the principles of superconductivity, fusion, lasers and other technologies will open June 26 at Cal State Fullerton. The teaching institute, paid for with a $475,500 grant from the National Science Foundation, will be directed by Roger Nanes, physics professor; John W. Jewett, acting chairman of the physics department at Cal Poly Pomona, and William H. Leader, physics teacher at Loara High School in Anaheim.

Physicist Roger Nanes was frustrated. Year after year, freshmen entering his Cal State Fullerton classes showed less and less knowledge of fundamental science and mathematical concepts that are supposed to be taught in high school. UC Irvine chemist Mare Taagepera saw similar flaws in her students. After a little digging, both concluded that many secondary and elementary school science programs were being taught by teachers with little or no science background.
