Xraise is Outreach for CLASSE

Xraise provides experiences, to students, educators, and the public, that make science familiar and accessible. Immersed with scientists themselves, we facilitate hands-on minds-on activities that involve direct interaction with physics phenomena. Through professional development, camps, tours, after-school and weekend family activities, and media, we foster excitement while developing understanding and intuitions about physics.

Internships offer an exciting way to discover research interest while gaining real-world marketable skills in a world-class laboratory. Opportunities include: Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU), Summer Research for Community College Students (SRCCS), and High School Research Apprenticeships and Exhibit Prototyping through the Learning Web.


The CLASSE Institute for Physics Teachers provides equipment and training for content-rich high school physics lab activities. Designed to update high school teachers on recent advances in physics and related applications, participants attending CIPT workshops attend presentations given by scientists and conduct take-home laboratory exercises designed to meet the time and budgetary constraints of a typical high school.


Tours of the Wilson Laboratory are available to school groups, interested professionals, and the public. Highlights include the CESR control room, the CLEO solenoid, the synchrotron tunnel, CHESS ops, X-ray hutches, and the ERL prototype.
