To give Physics teachers the opportunity to develop their understanding of physics concepts through discussion with Physics researchers. This new knowledge and understanding is then shared with their students while teaching the curriculum in more innovative and exciting ways.
EM radiation is created by accelerating charged particles
The type (wavelength) of radiation emitted by celestial bodies is related to the process causing this radiation
The detectors of this radiation depend on how the photon interacts with matter.
Doppler Shift is related to distance and therefore time and 3 D mapping of the universe
9.30: registration and refreshments
10.00 - 13.00: Talks and projects with researchers
13.00 - 14.00: lunch and tour of department
14.00 - 16.00: finish projects and preparing teaching resources
This is a session for any teachers requiring to further their knowledge and understanding of the ‘new way’ to teach energy.
A whole day workshop, primarily aimed at Stimulating Physics Network Partner Schools. It’s important, when teaching physics, to set it in context so that our students can see the relevance. This day is aimed at showing how physics is involved in equestrian sports, hosted by the Aintree International Equestrian Centre, home to the world famous Grand National Race..
The day will include 4 sessions of physics based around curriculum content such as Newton’s Laws of Motion, Balanced forces and equilibrium, thermal insulation and projectile motion. There will also be a behind the scenes tour of the facilities of the racecourse and a demonstration of show jumping.
It is anticipated that the course will be popular so early booking is recommended.
