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!
Smaller groups may combine or be combined with other schools. Preferred days are Tuesday and Thursday but other days are available by request.
