APPEAL-8 Misadventures Along the Path to Big Physics Discoveries
The University of Oxford is organising in collaboration with CERN a one-day school to give A-level teachers an opportunity to learn about the phenomena and scientific challenges which connect astrophysics, particle physics and the physics of particle accelerators.
Teachers will have the opportunity to learn more about the scientific method in research and about some of its limitations and challenges. The school will address examples, such as faster-than-light neutrino, a heavy Higgs boson at 750 GeV/c^2 mass and dark matter. The school will include a panel discussion of distinguished scientists on the importance of the scientific method to discovery science.
This school is designed for physics teachers who are not necessarily physics specialists. Preference will be given to teachers coming from schools which usually send very few pupils to University.
There are no registration fees for the teachers to participate in the event, but to take part in this school please register here before the Friday, 23 June 2017.
