Adventures @CERN with High School Physics Teachers from around the World


Lisa Cole - Ontario Ministry of Education


As a result of winning the Ontario Excellence in High School/CEGEP Physics Teaching Award by the Canadian Association of Physicists, I attended the High School Physics Teacher Program @CERN as the Canadian teacher participant! The three week program was action packed with lectures, facility tours, workgroup sessions and lots of discussions. Jeff Wiener and Maureen Prola-Tessaur of the outreach team at CERN were energetic, enthusiastic and highly efficient at creating an experience for all the participants that was not only educational but also truly inspiring.
