FRONTIERS, the European initiative for bringing Nobel Prize Physics to the classroom announces its first international e-winter school for teachers!
Throughout this period many things we took for granted have changed. However, what hasn’t changed is our vision to help introduce our young students to the beauty of cutting edge research in Physics. Do you believe that exciting discoveries such as the Discovery of Gravitational Waves or the Discovery of the Higgs Boson can be brought in the classroom in a consistent and understandable fashion? Can you imagine your students performing virtual visits to CERN or VIRGO, analyzing real experimental data and interacting with world leading scientists in the field of Physics? Would you like to become a member of a pan-European community of teachers and researchers aiming to introduce Nobel Prize Physics to Your school? If the answer to the questions above is yes, the FRONTIERS winter school is the place to be!
