This digital lesson will introduce atoms, nucleons and electrons, strange elementary particles, quarks, antiparticles and antimatter, annihilation and creation and standard model – a great range of topics presented in a varied interactive way.
Now, at the website of the LHC you can find a handy guide to the basic physics concepts – called LHC “Big Questions”. Among others they ask the following:
- Why do particles have mass?
- How did our universe come to be the way it is?
- What kind of Universe do we live in?
- What happened in the Big Bang?
Put these questions as tasks for your students and see what answers they can come up with based on their knowledge and the lesson’s input.
The importance of connecting theory and activity with practical knowledge and recent research outcomes is undisputed. Let us know how your students liked the digital lesson and how they coped with LHC Big Questions.
