Physics Teachers’ Summer School 2011
4 August 2011
On 25-28 May 2011 a group of 21 Scottish physics teachers attended the IOP’s Physics Teachers’ Summer School which was organised with the support of SSERC.
The teachers attended a number of talks and workshops aimed at supporting the new Higher and Advanced Higher Physics Courses.
Visits were made to the University of Strathclyde teaching and research labs, the Whitelee Wind Farm and a science walk around Glasgow city centre.
Teachers from state funded schools benefited from ENTHUSE funding which more than covered the cost of the event and were provided with some free equipment.
Evaluations were very positive and it is intended to organise a similar event around the same time next year. Details to follow early in 2012.
