APPEAL 6 - The International Year of Light

The University of Oxford is organising in collaboration with CERN a one-day school to give A-level teachers an opportunity to learn about particle physics and accelerators including the LHC. This school will give an insight into particle accelerators and particle physics to Physics teachers who are not necessarily Physics specialists. Preference will be given to teachers coming from schools which usually send very few pupils to University.

The school will address questions that often fascinate students, such as “How does a particle accelerator work?” “What has been discovered at the LHC already?" "What are particle physicists looking for next?” “What will come after the LHC?" and “Will accelerators just keep on getting larger?"

Past APPEAL events (APPEAL-1, APPEAL-2, APPEAL-3, APPEAL-4 and APPEAL-5) were very successful and we are looking forward to a very interesting and thought-provoking event this year as well.


The APPEAL-6 event will take place on Saturday, 18 July 2015 at the University of Oxford.

To take part in this school please register before the 3 July 2015.

There are no registration fees for the teachers to participate in the event. The organisers are grateful for the support received from the following organisations:
