Engaging students with big stories of contemporary science is a characteristic of inspiring science teaching. This is the first ONLINE UK Teacher Programme and is FREE to attend. It features various talks delivered via Zoom that include ample opportunities for teachers to interact with the lecturers and discuss open questions.This course will have a one and a half hour talk every day from Mon 15 Feb to Fri 19 Feb from 10:00am - 11:30am. There will be a welcome talk and a talk about future ‘in person’ and a full timetable will be sent out via e-mail. 

It can be considered a taster for our UK Teacher Programme which is running in Dec (7-11) 2021. This is a unique opportunity for UK teachers to visit CERN and have its facilities, functions and operation explained by the scientists and engineers who work there. There is usually a second opportunity in the February half term in 2022 as well to attend should you wish if the December instance is full.



You will be able to:

  • apply knowledge and understanding of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) to physics teaching
  • describe scientific issues and controversies related to the LHC
