Bringing Nobel Prize Physics in the Classroom
Domain: Science

Have you ever wondered how we can integrate Modern Physics in the school curriculum? 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? The FRONTIERS Project brings together expertise from frontier scientific research and educational research in formal and informal science learning, along with user communities across Europe, in order to demonstrate how Nobel Prize winning science can be systematically integrated in the school curriculum.

How do I participate in FRONTIERS ?

It only takes a few minutes: Subscribe to our newsletter and take a moment to fill the participation form of the project. Congratulations, you are now a FRONTIERS teacher!! Further information will be sent to your email.
To join the ongoing discussions in the FRONTIERS Community, you only need to make your registration (by clicking on register on the top of the page) and press join community
You can also join the FRONTIERS communities in France, Greece, Ireland, Italy and Portugal!

Your journey just began!
