Playing with Protons Astronomy workshop

53 views

Published on

Playing with Protons is an education initiative led by the CMS experiment at CERN bringing together primary school teachers, science education specialists and CERN researchers to develop creative approaches to helping all primary students engage effectively in physics, discovery and innovation. The project manager is Dr. Angelos Alexopoulos, Education Outreach Officer of the CMS Experiment at CERN.
The pedagogical coordinator is the Physicist of the Hill Memorial School, Tina Nantsou.
For 3 consecutive years since 2016 there have been Public Primary School Teachers Professional Development Courses held at CERN to utilise creative methodologies to develop educational scenarios and lesson plans for enhancing physics teaching and learning.
This presentation was presented in CREATIONS summer school 2018 as part of a hands-on Playing with Protons workshop on scientific inquiry, astronomy, cosmology and Elementary Particles and LHC technology workshop. This is part 2.
