For all teachers of Physics… join the Welsh Physics Teachers Conference Brecon 2020 which will be online this year between 5th-10th October 2020. A fabulous free week of presentations and workshop for teachers, technicians and PGCE students with opportunities to network with colleagues online.
Gravitational Waves – online resources
Although gravitational waves are not directly on the curriculum, they are of course a topical subject in science. there are a number of different ways in which they can be used to link to topics that are: from properties of waves, to trigonometry, and from interference to cosmology. There are also opportunities for looking at noisy data, and even (for the more adventurous) using code to extract and analyse data. We will explore the curriculum links and existing resources that can be used at GCSE and above. There are example datasets for hands-on experiments which might be useful if group practicals are impractical. Suitable for KS4-5.
