EINSTEINPLUS

EinsteinPlus is a one-week intensive workshop for Canadian and international high school teachers that focuses on modern physics, including quantum physics, special relativity, and cosmology.

EinsteinPlus also provides unique opportunities to learn some of the latest developments in physics from expert researchers at the forefront of their fields, enjoy lab tours and take part in social events with like-minded teachers from around the globe. Sessions include:

  • Innovative teaching strategies suitable for all areas of physics
  • Quantum physics: Wave-particle duality and the electron double-slit experiment
  • GPS and relativity
  • Dark matter as an application of uniform circular motion
  • Measuring Planck's constant using simple electronic circuit.

EinsteinPlus will take place from July 6th - 12th, 2014 at Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
