Playing with Protons is an education initiative led by the CMS experiment at CERN bringing together primary school teachers, science education specialists and CERN researchers to develop creative approaches to helping all primary students engage effectively in physics, discovery and innovation.
Our continuing professional development (CPD) courses provide primary school teachers with an excellent opportunity to:
Experience the unique culture of cutting-edge science, technology and innovation at the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
Get inspired and motivated to share their newly acquired knowledge and experience with peers, parents and the larger community.
Try out new learning activities, especially hands-on experiments with everyday materials, to increase interest and motivation of students.
Utilise creative methodologies to develop educational scenarios and lesson plans for enhancing physics teaching and learning.
