Abstract
The rapid changes in science and technology witnessed in recent decades have significantlycontributed to the arousal of the awareness in decision-makers and the public as a whole of theneed to strengthen the connection between academic outreach offices and educational institutions.In this context a central role should be played by schools. In the present paper we report onan ongoing project aimed to teach Particle Physics in primary schools, originally designed byC. Lazzeroni and M. Pavlidou at the University of Birmingham. The Italian version of the projectwas focused on the relevance of teachers’ training in the adaptation of the tools and methodologiesto a very different school context than the original one. We also make some general comments onseveral aspects related to the dissemination by research institutions of outreach materials designed for schools.
