The IYPT problem solving workshop (July 12, afternoon) will introduce teachers to some of the IYPT problems of previous years, especially to those which might serve as models for project work in classrooms. Advance registration is necessary. The workshop will be conducted with a minimum of 3 participants and a maximum of 20. It will focus on the physics content and on argumentation.

Besides the physics fights and excursions special highlights will be the talks by Prof. Rudi Grimm at the opening ceremony and by Prof. Christian Fabjan after the Tuesday afternoon visit to research institutions in Vienna. Prof. Grimm does experiments at one of the coldest places in the universe, i.e. his laboratory at Innsbruck University where he and his co-workers investigate the behaviour of matter at the very lowest temperatures. Prof. Fabjan will give an outlook on what to expect of particle physics research within the next decade and will connect accelerator physics with astrophysics.

Of course, the physics fights deserve particular attention. Visiting teachers will be able to experience intense scientific debates about explanations – and weaknesses thereof – of everyday phenomena.

Advance registration is required. Deadline for visiting teachers: May 21st.
