Summer Schools are open to non-specialist teachers of physics from Stimulating Physics Network Partner Schools. Each school consists of four days of intensive hands-on workshops led by the Teaching and Learning Coaches. The Summer Schools focus on developing both subject knowledge and pedagogy.
Our First Year programme covers core topics for non-specialists such as electricity, energy and forces. Our Second Year programme, for teachers who have previously attended a Summer School, builds on the First Year course and introduces radioactivity, momentum and waves.
All costs of attending the School are covered by the Stimulating Physics Network and a suggested bursary of £100 is available to all who attend.
The Summer Schools aim to help you:
- feel more confident about teaching physics;
- enjoy the subject more;
- make physics more interesting for your students;
- broaden your understanding of physics.
Along with the intensive programme of workshops, discussions and masterclasses, the schools include food, accommodation and entertainment. You can follow these courses on twitter throughout Summer 2013:
- York Summer School: #SPNYork
- Cambridge Summer School: #SPNCam
- Oxford Summer School: #SPNOxford
Registration is now open for the 2013 Summer Schools: 23-26 July at the National Science Learning Centre, York; 19-22 August at Homerton College, Cambridge; and 22-25 August at St Anne's College, Oxford.
