Introduction to Physics
Can you make a lightbulb work without electricity? How do you make objects float in midair? And what is the connection between a tsunami and a guitar? Join us as we explore the intriguing world of physics.
When you get up in the morning and turn on the light in the bathroom, electrical energy is present. Then, as you wash your face, the water drops that fall into the sink go down the drain because of gravity. When you leave the house and look up, you see the blue color of the sky because of the dispersion of particles in the air.
What do all these phenomena have in common? They are all part of our daily lives, and they are all part of the fascinating world of physics.
This class takes participants on a fascinating journey, beginning with man's first encounters with 16th-century physics, through the modern revelations and incarnations of this filed, to a glimpse of the future that awaits us.
Join us for a journey to discover the basic principles of physics, and get scientific tools to understand nature's most wonderful mechanisms in an interesting, intriguing and enriching class!
