This is a community by UK primary teachers of the Playing with Protons programme at CERN. In here you will find learning resources such as educational scenarios and lesson plans but also school initiatives and more on primary science education. All this has been developed by the CREATIONS team and most importantly by the teachers themselves who, together with you, constitute an ever-growing community of passionate, innovative and creative primary science educators.
You are also encouraged to get involved with our parent CREATIONS community in which you can discover creative approaches based on the arts for an engaging science classroom that have been developed by 16 partners from 10 European countries.
