The NSF-funded IRIS-HEP "Training, Education & Outreach" program and QuarkNet are partnering to enable and expand software training for the high school teachers with a goal to tap, grow and diversify the talent pipeline from K-12 students for future cyberinfrastructure. IRIS-HEP (https://iris-hep.org/) is a software institute that aims to develop the state-of-the-art software cyberinfrastructure for the High Luminosity Large Hadron Collider (HL-LHC) at CERN and other planned HEP experiments of the 2020’s. QuarkNet (https://quarknet.org/) provides professional development to K-12 physics teachers in particle physics content and methods. The two projects have recently built a collaborative relationship where a well-established community of QuarkNet K-12 teachers has access to a wide training on software tools via its Data and Coding Camps supported by IRIS-HEP. The talk highlights the synergistic efforts and future plans.
