FROM NEWTON TO CERN Project Overview Learning Areas

FROM NEWTON TO CERN Project Overview Learning Areas Levels Objectives Description Software Keywords Authors Mechanics, Particle Physics, Electromagnetism, Astronomy, Computer Science Students 15-17 years old Learn the conditions that makes an object to travel on a circular orbit. Learn how this theoretical model can be applied on Astronomy. How do planets move? Why their orbits are circular? Learn how the same model is applied on Particle Physics. Why accelerators are circular? What is happening in CERN NOW? Learn how to develop and apply a model with the use of computers. Students Studied the theoretical background of normal circular motion (constant angular speed), Observed both Lorenz Force on a charged particle and the Gravitational Force on Moon Encouraged to apply the same model on both cases, although the nature of each Force is different.

George Diplaris & Dr. Kostas Dimitriou, Psychiko College (HAEF), Greece Documents About Innovative About Vitual About the use of Teachers Classroom Tours sources , info Pictures and other sources, form m m FROM NEWTON TO CERN Teacher Planning and Management During lectures (phase 1, two school hours), students learned about circular motion and the Newtons 2nd Law, understood Lorenz force and how particles could be accelerated in a circular orbit, were taught about gravity and how the planets are moving the way the move. During the second phase (computer lab, 1 school hour) students developed two computer models using Modellus and Interactive Physics: The Moon, as it moves around Earth and The LHC in CERN, where proton packets collide. All data were provided by teachers The third phase (one school hour) focused on the use of the World Wide Telescope from Microsoft Research. Students saw the Moon circling around Earth. They had to accelerate time about 1000000 times. A demonstration tour was prepared by teachers. Finally, (phase 4, one school hour) students had a teleconference with two Greek scientists from CERN (Dr Koratzinos and Dr Papaphilippou). Students had a lot to ask so as to understand what is happening in CERN.

These are innovation skills that students who are prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments should master. People in our century live and work in a technology and media-driven environment, characterized by quick search and access to information, fast changes in tools and methods and the ability to collaborate and make individual contributions on an phenomenal scale. To be effective in our century individuals must be able to exhibit Information and Communications Technology (ICT) literacy. Interdisciplinary work can help students see the crucial connections between bodies of knowledge, and more fluently synthesize different and distinct domains.
