Bringing scientists into your classroom
How Theorynet works: Teachers need no background in particle
physics: they invite physicists to visit their classes and propose a
format: it may be a formal presentation on a scientist's research
topics, on the material currently studied in class or a Q&A session
answering curiosity-based questions, or a career day type event like
"What is like to be a scientist?"
Physicists do all the rest of the work.
Teachers and physicists are paired as teams for 2-3 semesters
Teams meet with whole Theorynet group of 20 physicists and
teachers one or two times per semester and develop a learning
Physicists visit the classroom, can also arrange "guest star"
