The Curriculum provided by this project involves one lesson every month for three months. The project is aimed towards primary school pupils between the ages of 6 and 8.
Each primary will learn about a different topic:
P2 - Pressure and Temperature, Cosmic Rays
P3 - Climate Change
P4 - Gravity
For each of these topics, lesson plans will be provided to teachers. In some cases, secondary school pupils will deliver the lessons to primary school pupils.
We will also run a programming club to teach children the basics of the applications of computer programming in experimental physics.
The primary schools involved in this project are Stenhousemuir, Carron, Carronshore, Kinnaird, Ladeside, Larbert Village and Airth Primary School. Pupils from Larbert High School will also be involved in teaching the primary school pupils.
