The teacher notes are intended to provide you with ideas for using the CERN video resources. Each video lasts around 3 minutes and is designed as stimulus material which can be used as the basis for developing further activities mainly within the Science and Technology and Learning for Life and Work Areas of Learning. Depending on how the activities are structured and developed they might be used to provide pupils with opportunities to acquire and develop skills. There are also opportunities to use the Curriculum Key Elements to enable pupils to make learning connections across Areas of Learning and to explore issues.

The teachers’ notes provide a summary of the content in each of the videos and offer suggestions for planning and developing enquiry based activities which are infused with the Thinking Skills and Personal Capabilities and address important messages around some Key Elements.
