The Regional Physics Day, organised by the Stimulating Physics Network and educational charity Physics Partners, will be staged at St Anselm’s Catholic School in Canterbury on Saturday, March 3.

Organisers anticipate the event will attract physics teachers and trainees from schools in Canterbury, Shepway and Thanet, as a welcome change from travelling to London to earn continuing professional development points.

During the day delegates will receive information explaining how to nominate colleagues for an accolade at the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards. The event will mark the official launch of the Physics Teacher of the Year category – and encourage nominations to reward the county’s best and most dedicated practitioners.

Schools and members of the public can submit their nominations at www.kentteacheroftheyear.co.uk

The Regional Physics Day will feature 16 workshops on topics ranging from teaching basic electric circuits to ideas for teaching radioactivity. Some sessions will be very hands-on such as the “Oh no, it’s required!” workshop which will give advice on delivering the new GCSE core practicals. Other sessions will focus on themes such as helping students to learn equations.

Delegates will also have the opportunity to meet and build contacts over a networking lunch which is provided free of charge.
