Physics research coming into school

Abstract

In many countries, this is for example the case of Poland, the shifting of intellectual interests towards “not-strictly-science” sciences leads to shrinkage of physics programmes in secondary schools. Obviously, it does not seem reasonable to eliminate from school programmes Galileo’s laws of kinematics or Newton’s lawsof dynamics. At this point, teaching Physics risks to become a kind of “mentalexercise” – more as exemplification of mathematics than introducing into richness of problems of Physics itself.A possible recipe for this dilemma is introducing element of “live”, i.e. Modern Physics. Several such examples arrive from Italian secondary (lyceum) school system.The work in the DW “D” workshop Physics research in the classroom was greatly based on these examples.The main contributions to the Workshop came from:1) Davide Cenadelli and Antonella Testa from Università degli Studi di Milanoon Astrophysics2) Lorenzo Santi and Marisa Michelini from Università degli Studi di Udine on Physics of Elementary Particles3) Federico Corni from Università degli Studi di Modena on Solid State Physics4) Andrzej Karbowski, Grzegorz Osiński and Grzegorz Karwasz from Uniwersytet Mikołaja Kopernika, Toruń on Quantum Colllisions and on CosmologyIn the discussion participants from Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Norway, Poland, Italy took part. In addition to the scientific and didactical matters, the need for exchanging practical information (what kind of equipment, which are the waysof funding) was stressed in the discussion. Finally, we also presented the outcomes of two EU projects developed on Modern Physics and on Superconductivity and Polish Programme on Science Centres.
