This paper describes the implementation and results of high school physics classes on superconductivity. The study was designed as an attempt of updating the physics curriculum at this level through the progressive introduction of contemporary physics topics. Pre-service physics teachers were trained to do so, and the results, in terms of student’s learning and teacher preparation were quite satisfactory.
