Inspiring Science Educators Summer Academy 2015 in Marathon, Greece
It is an amazing experience here in Greece! This week I am with teachers from the United States and across Europe to develop lesson plans around inquiry science. A respository of these types of scenarios called Go Labs is found at http://www.golabz.eu/. We have been introduced to a variety of eTools and resources to engage students in learning about science and in particular, physics and high energy physics. An interesting app I want to share allows you to use your cell phone as a cosmic ray muon detector: http://crayfis.io/ . The Institute's leaders, Dr. Eugenia Kypriotis, Dr. Angelos Lazoudis, and Dr. Rosa Doran, have organized an outstanding offering for science teachers. Thank you to QuarkNet for sponsoring this opportunity to collaborate with teachers throughout the world in beautiful Greece!
