We are strategic risk takers, innovators, and collaborators. We are engineers, scientists, technicians, administrative professionals. We are 1,800 employees advancing knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Fermilab has been at the forefront of particle physics for more than 40 years. We build world-leading accelerators and detectors to conduct some of the most advanced particle physics experiments possible. We collect and analyze the data from those experiments with some of the most powerful computers in the world. We conduct this research on a 6,800-acre prairie, 35 miles outside Chicago, a treasure that has been designated a National Environmental Research Park.

The Teacher Research Associates (TRAC) is an outstanding eight-week program that provides science, mathematics, computer science and technology teachers with professional summer research experience. Increased teacher awareness and understanding of cutting-edge science and technology is then transferred to the classroom.
