Workshop: Bringing Citizen Science and Frontier Physic to the Classroom

Citizen Science creates numerous opportunities for all citizens – independent of their location, gender, or education – to be involved in ground-breaking fundamental research. Through citizen science activities, everyone can contribute to the development of new knowledge. Increasingly, scientists from Large Research Infrastructures and Frontier Physics experiments are starting to share their data and ask for citizens to support the optimization of their detectors to enhance discoveries potential.

But how can schools and students support their work?

Join this REINFORCE vision-building workshop to help us design citizen science projects in school education, so that your students can explore cosmic events with a detector installed deep in the sea. The workshop will take place on Saturday 7 November 11:00h – 13:00h CET. 

Join the workshop

The workshop will showcase citizen science projects in frontier physics, with experts from infrastructures such as CERN, VIRGO/EGO, or KM3NeT introducing their ideas and engaging with participants to better understand teachers and students’ needs, interests, motivations and ideas on how to integrate citizen science in the classroom.

The workshop is being organised as part of the EDEN Open Classroom Conference 2020. You can register for the conference here.

About the Conference

Co-organised by Ellinogermaniki Agogi, the Institute of Educational Policy and the European Distance and E-Learning Network – EDEN in the framework of the Reflecting for Change project, the aim of the Open Classroom Conference 2020 “Open and Distance Education: New challenges and Perspectives” is to explore the idea of “Open School” as an engaging environment that effectively introduces novel methodologies, tools and content by re-designing learning to accommodate and include difference and by bringing together families, community groups, local businesses, experts, universities, into an innovation ecosystem.

The Open Classroom Conference 2020 “Open and Distance Education: New challenges and Perspectives” will take place on 6-8 November  through virtual facilities (Youtube) while participants of the workshops can join through Zoom
