FuseNet presents: the European Fusion Teacher Day 2020!

A fully remote event for teachers throughout all of Europe on 17-6-2020. 

Open to all science and physics teachers in Europe, the event consists of an afternoon in which the newest developments in nuclear fusion as well as newly developed classroom materials on fusion are being presented. During the day you will get a look behind the scenes of the most groundbreaking fusion experiments of today and learn about fusion first-hand from experts in the field. 

FuseNet aims to make knowledge of nuclear fusion accessible for everyone. To secure the future of nuclear fusion, a skilled and diverse fusion workforce is needed: young people should be welcomed to the fusion research and engineering community. For many people, secondary school teachers are the first ambassadors of science they would meet in their lives: the impact of enthusiastic role-models with a passion for science on eager students is incredible. Therefore, FuseNet wants to reach out to you as a teacher to provide you with classroom opportunities.

Among other items, live connections will be made with the oldest tokamak still in operation, with international fusion experiment ITER and presentation material for in the classroom will be shared.
