Exploring the Heavens
An 8 evening conceptual exploration of the universe. Light, Quantum physics and Relativity are introduced and applied to astronomy. We also examine the latest discovers and their significance. A few key concepts go a long way.
Dates available early in 2019
A 5 evening introduction to Quantum physics. We explore the wave nature of particles, and how that lead to the uncertainty principle. We apply the concepts to the atoms, optics ,polarization and astronomy.
Saturday and Sunday 10:00am - 4:00pm

The Theorem of Pythagoras in Physics
Mathematics is the language of science. This course is an introduction to the application of mathematics in Physics. Pythagoras's Theorem applied to Newtonian momentum, Einstein's Relativity and the probability of states in Quantum Mechanics. Over 3 evenings we explore the many ways to interprete this ancient theorem.

This is a single evening event to demystify Einstein's Relativity for HSC students. A 3D stereo presentation applies the two axioms of relativity to derive time dilation, lose of simultaneity and length contraction. There is ample time for students to ask questions and experience a brief visit to a telescope at the observatory.
4:00pm - 6:00pm or 6:00pm - 8:00pm
