Explore Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity using custom 3D visualisation software. Learners will discover the origin of the time dilation equation using Pythagoras’ simple theorem – no complicated mathematics required! Study space-time to see why simultaneous events are special, and even visualise the concept of length contraction. Join us for a Q&A session around all things Relativity, while enjoying some light refreshments. If weather permits, learners will even use a professional telescope to look at objects in the sky and see Einstein’s predictions in action!
