Event description

Description

A full day of Physics teacher CPD workshops provided by Institute of Physics coaches – whether you’re a physics specialist or not. All teachers of physics, NQTs, technicians and trainees are welcome.

There is no charge to attend - the conference is very generously hosted by Charterhouse School, in Godalming, Surrey and offers the opportunity to take part in a number of different workshops over the day.

Lunch and refreshments provided.

11.50 - 12.50 Keynote: Small Science - Big Future... Dr Annela Seddon, Senior Physics Lecturer and Director of the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials, University of Bristol.

How can nanophysics help with photovoltaic power generation?

Graphene, a nanomaterial – good for water purification?

How can physics on the nanoscale be applied for health and medicine?

Annela develops activities for use in schools and will show us some demos and models to illustrate how such questions can be explored by students, for example in the Y10 curriculum. Nanoscience and Nanotechnology allow scientists the chance to bring together Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering to understand the world on this very small scale. Objects begin to behave in a weird and unpredictable way! How do scientists measure and understand these strange properties, and hope to apply them to solve some global problems?
