This event is for anyone teaching, or preparing to teach, A-level Physics. Following her successful seminars over the past two years, Professor Cristina Lazzeroni will lead another theory and practical session on Wednesday 21 September. In the morning, we'll review of what is known about cosmic rays. After lunch (provided free of charge by the IOP) there will be a hands-on session with a cosmic ray detector.
Sessions will be pitched for teachers who may not be specialists in particle physics, but will include opportunities for those with greater knowledge to update themselves. The aim is that everyone should be comfortable with what they teach - plus a little more.
