Queensland school kids to learn about the physics of sustainability, and what lies beyond the Standard Model

2 Aug 2021 1:45 PM | Anonymous

Two physicists are dropping in at schools in Queensland this month to deliver entertaining talks on converting hydrogen into humans and the hunt for new subatomic particles.

Dr Martin Springer, a theoretical physicist from the University of Queensland, will explore the physics of sustainability, and whether the Earth has enough resources to power 10 billion people.

Another University of Queensland physicist, Dr Jacinda Ginges, will explain the fun to be had in searching for new physics beyond the Standard Model.

The scientists – on separate tours – will variously visit schools in Mt Isa, Weipa, Buderim, Brisbane and Toowoomba, with new venues being added as you read this.
