Abstract

This report summarises the work done at the University of Birmingham, UK, in collaboration with Odgen Trust Fellows to develop a set of resources for teaching basic concepts of Particle Physics in primary schools. The particle physics workshop explores the ability of young children to be imaginative and creative, and exploits it to teach them the fundamentals of particle physics in a fun way.
