Besides the curriculum development, a collection of Lesson Plans thematizing “Reflections on Gender and Physics” is an important transferable outcome of the project. The course plans are broadly applyable for the topic of "Gender and Physics". You can find the whole Lesson Plan Series here.

As part of the annual Summer Schools a curriculum was developed by the Strategic Partnership. The curriculum has been used and evaluated in each round of the Summer School Series. You can find the document as a pdf-file here.

2019 a portrait of the project "Diversity in the Cultures of Physics" and the Summer School Series was published in "Physik Journal": M. Erlemann, E. Scheich, L. Schiestl (2019): Vielfalt für die Physik. In: Physik Journal Nr. 3: 48-51. Members of Deutsche Physikalische Gesellschaft have open access to it.

Based on outreach activities the Strategic Partnership published a flyer, in which the best ways to conceptualize outreach events will be analyzed so that they contribute to more diversity in physics. This flyer addresses outreach practitioners who are working with children and young people (under 18), either in a school setting or informal science learning environments (science festivals, science centres, activity clubs etc.). With inlcuding information about role models, gendered language and a checklist the flyer can support gender inclusive outreach activities. Here you can also download the flyer as a pdf-file.
