The FRONTIERS project, funded within the framework of the European Union’s Erasmus+ programme, aims to bring Nobel Prize winning science into the classroom, integrating it in the school curriculum. To do so it involves teachers from all across Europe in the design and development of innovative classroom activities, supporting them with expertise from frontier scientific research and educational research in formal and informal science learning.
The project’s main goals are:
- Selecting a series of scientific research outreach programs that successfully introduce the scientific methodology in school science education
- Integrating these initiatives under a common educational approach and developing the FRONTIERS Demonstrators
- Creating virtual learning communities of educators, students and researchers and involving them in extended episodes of playful learning
- Identifying the impact of the proposed approaches and activities in terms of their effectiveness and efficiency
- Designing a systematic raising awareness strategy that contributes to the effective communication of the project’s results and outcomes
By joining FRONTIERS teachers are granted access a wealth of educational resources introducing concepts from Astrophysics and Gravitational Wave Astronomy to Particle and Astroparticle Physics, training by world leading experts in frontier Physics and in Science Education and continuous and personalized support for introducing frontier Physics in their classroom. They are also supported in organizing virtual visits to Large Research Infrastructures such as CERN and EGO for their students.
