Lancaster University Physics Department, Lancaster, Lancashire, United Kingdom, LA1 4YW

Organised by The IOP Stimulating Physics Network

Delivered by Lancaster University Physics Department

Sponsored by The Ogden Trust

Aim:

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.

Main concepts

  • 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

Programme

  • 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
