High School & University Joint Physics Education Seminar

2009-8-19 (Wed) - 2009-8-20 (Thu)

This seminar is mainly intended for senior high school teachers.

Under the theme of "measurement," results of the latest research in a variety of fields ranging from the universe to the atom, extreme environments such as those with extremely low temperature, ultra strong magnetic fields, or ultra high pressure will be explained in an easy-to-understand manner. It is hoped that this seminar will be useful for high school educators.
