You can now express your interest in attending a Summer School in 2014.
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 and a suggested bursary of £100 is available to all who attend.
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:
