2022 Glass: a window into Quantum Physics
Engage with this year’s National Science Week!
The theme? Glass: more than meets the eye. Join in with this Australia wide event!
National Science Week Dates
13th-21st of August
The school theme for National Science Week in 2022 is Glass: More than meets the eye. It is based on the UN International Year of Glass. It will celebrate the many roles that glass plays in our lives – from phone screens to optical fibre to glassware in labs – plus investigating glass as a part of our sustainable future. The uses for and intrinsic nature of glass in science make it a suitable topic for investigation across all strands of science education.
We offer a curriculum linked, interactive experience engaging year 10 students in quantum physics problem. Within this students create a model to explain why glass is “invisible” to visible light.
