Stimulating Physics Network Schools

Summer Schools

Registration is open for our 2015 Summer Schools. And if you can't make it in 2015, express interest in attending a Summer School next year.

Summer Schools are open to non-specialist teachers of physics from Stimulating Physics Network Partner Schools. Each school consists of four days of intensive hands-on workshops led by the Teaching and Learning Coaches. The Summer Schools focus on developing both subject knowledge and pedagogy.

Our First Year programme covers core topics for non-specialists such as electricity, energy and forces. Our Second Year programme, for teachers who have previously attended a Summer School, builds on the First Year course and introduces radioactivity, momentum and waves.

All costs of attending the school are covered by the Stimulating Physics Network.

The Summer Schools aim to help you:

  • feel more confident about teaching physics;
  • enjoy the subject more;
  • make physics more interesting for your students;
  • broaden your understanding of physics.

Along with our intensive programme of workshops, discussions and masterclasses, the Summer Schools include food, accommodation and entertainment. You can follow these courses on twitter:
