Particle Physics for Teachers is a free online course hosted by SonS France Ambassador Michael Gregory, designed to spark curiosity, to bridge the gap between researchers and teachers, and to share fun and innovative ways to bring modern science into the classroom.
This course is the next iteration of Michael’s “Particle Physics for Kids” Virtual Science Camps, run in 2021 and 2022, which were featured as “inspiring success stories” by the International Particle Physics Outreach Group.
Classes will alternate between “scientific sessions”, consisting of a lecture or visit by a scientist guest host, and “pedagogical sessions” highlighting resources, experiments and curriculum connections to share ways to bring new ideas into the classroom.
Registration is now open!!!
