FRONTIERS Online Summer School 2020
Are you interested to learn how to introduce your students to topics such as the discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN, the detection of Gravitational waves from black hole and neutron star mergers at Virgo and LIGO, or the discovery of exoplanets?
Do you want to learn how we can apply the principles of citizen science to the classroom? Do you want to join an international community of scientists, outreach experts and educators who share the same passion for bringing cutting edge research to the classroom in a systematic and engaging way that offers connection to school curricula?
If the answer is yes, then we invite you to join us in the FRONTIERS e-Summer School: an online training course for science teachers motivated to introduce Nobel Prize Physics to their Classrooms. Together, we will explore concepts of Nobel Prize Physics and will discuss methodologies to introduce them to our classroom. We will work with already established high quality educational content and will collaborate to produce educational content that will be shared to all science teachers in Europe.
During the Summer School, two days will be devoted to REINFORCE activities (21/22 July 2020)
- Introduction to the FRONTIERS pedagogical design and introduction to the FRONTIERS activities for bringing Nobel Prize Physics to the classroom, to participating teachers.
- Development of a series of educational activities by teachers in collaboration with their peers and FRONTIERS experts and thus preparation of a FRONTIERS bookletthat will be shared to all schools in Europe.
- Discussion of the merits and barriers of introducing Nobel Prize Physics to the Classroom and presentation of the FRONTIERS methodology to achieve that.
Who should participate?
Secondary science teachers and primary school teachers from across the world are welcome to join. The positions are limited, therefore all applications will be subject to evaluation. The participation deadline is the 6th of July 2020 and the final participants will be announced at the 8th of July 2020.
