As part of its active involvement in supporting physics in schools and colleges, the Institute of Physics arranges courses throughout the year for experienced and practising teachers of physics.
This autumn’s course will be based at the university’s physics department and accommodation will be at Jesus College which is a short walk into the city centre.
The 3-day programme will include these talks:
• The crystal world
• Robotic planetary exploration
• Tracking magnetic fields with SQUIDs
• Exploring the Zooniverse
• The wonderful world of lasers (demonstration lecture)
• How does that work? Explaining science
• A mini TeachMeet (where everyone will have an opportunity to share their own teaching ideas)
And a choice of workshop sessions:
• Material physics: dye sensitised solar cells
• Make-and-take on waves and radiation
• Astrophysics activities for the classroom
• Modern medical imaging
… as well as a visit to the Diamond Light Source facility on Saturday morning (http://www.diamond.ac.uk/).
Costs have been subsidised by the IOP and Armourers & Brasiers and for the 3 days: residential places are £150 for IOP members/schools; non-residential places are £65 for IOP members/schools.
