APPEAL - Accelerator and Particle Physics Education at A-Level
APPEAL is a yearly 1-day event for A-Level Physics teachers to explain what goes on at the LHC and other such accelerators.
The event is organized by JAI and University of Oxford in collaboration with CERN.
This one-day school gives A-level teachers an opportunity to learn about the physics underlying the LHC, will give basic information about particle accelerators and particle physics to Physics teachers who are not necessarily Physics specialists.
Each year the APPEAL event has a particular focus theme:
- Oncoming APPEAL-8 of 2017: "Misadventures Along the Path to Big Physics Discoveries"
- APPEAL-7 of 2016: "Understanding the Universe – From Gravitational Waves to Sub-atomic Particles"
- APPEAL-6 of 2015: "The International Year of Light"
- APPEAL-5 of 2014: "Discovery of the Higgs Boson –Step Closer to the Big Bang – what’s next?"
- APPEAL-4 of 2013: "The Discovery of the Higgs Boson – A Step Closer to the Big Bang"
- APPEAL-3 of 2012: "Searching for the New Worlds - from Planets to Subatomic Particles"
- APPEAL-2 of 2011: "Particle Accelerators - Shedding Light on the Dark Universe"
