Since 2012 we have been organizing yearly workshop targeted at secondary school teachers (in Portuguese). These take place during the school summer break and last for a week, including lessons, visits to our facilities and a tour of a large-scale laser or nuclear fusion laboratory abroad. They are free of charge and are credited by the CCPFC. Participants are selected, after an application process, on the basis of their CV.
So far we have organized workshops on the following topics:
Workshop on Lasers for High School Teachers
The program includes the fundamentals of lasers, applications, high power lasers, visits to the Laboratory for Intense Lasers and ISTTOK and to the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory in the UK.
Workshop on Nuclear Fusion for High School Teachers
The program includes fundamentals of plasma physics, applications of plasmas, fundamentals and technology of nuclear fusion, visits to the Laboratory for Intense Lasers and ISTTOK, and a visit to the Joint European Torus in the UK.
