The Sanford Underground Research Facility - in collaboration with Black Hills State University - has a vibrant program in K-12 education. One cornerstone of the program are curriculum units for grade 3-12 classrooms – in depth one to two week units of study connecting directly to Sanford Lab science and the state of South Dakota science standards. The units come with complete material kits which are shipped to the schools; professional development training was made available to teachers in 2016. As an example, the middle school unit on dark matter is featured in this article.
