Birmingham July 2012

The IOP together with the Armourers & Brasiers’ Company and SEPnet put on courses three times a year at different Universities for teachers. The course runs for three days.

The aims of the course are:

  • To update knowledge of recent developments in physics
  • To explore new practical activities and resources for use in the classroom
  • For opportunities to talk informally and share ideas with other physics teachers
  • And in turn, through teaching, extend and enrich students’ learning

The Summer July 2012 course took place at Birmingham University.

Birmingham’s Physics and Astronomy department offers degrees in Physics, Physics with international studies, Physics and Astrophysics, Physics with Nanotechnology, Physics with Particle Physics and Cosmology, Theoretical Physics and Applied Mathematics, Theoretical Physics, Nuclear Engineering and Nuclear Science and Materials. Birmingham also offers a foundation course to prepare students for a degree in physics who did the wrong combination of A levels or didn’t do well enough in their A level exams.
