The 8th Synchrotron Science Camp for Teachers held at Synchrotron Light Research Institute (SLRI) during 15-18 October 2017 with over 50 teachers attended from nation-wide.
The camp aims to enhance integrated knowledge and efficacy of high school teachers in science, especially in synchrotron advanced technology.

Practical section is included to propel group collaboration. Each groups of teachers were assigned with different experiment related to beamlines and accelerator and mentored by SLRI scientists and physicists; for example, study of oxidation, nano particle, investigation of reneweable technology with XRF technique, study of stainless steel with PEEM spectroscope, the scattering of zinc in bean sprout by XRF technique, study of calcium and phosphorus in bones with XANES technique, magnet system if accelerator, and LINAC design. These experiment were presented at the last period of the camp.
