  4. Saturday Morning Physics neutrinos

    November 10, 2015

    Students heard an enlightening, and confusing presentation of quantum mechanics. The quantum world is weird, there is no denying that.

  10. Saturday Morning Physics

    November 2, 2015

    Students learned about some very strange particles, called NEUTRINOS. Roughly 1,000,000,000,000,000 pass through your body every second, without colliding with your atoms. Very small indeed. We then toured a site and saw a very large, very cold magnet, used to study muons. This is the large magnet that shut down major highways as it was […]
