Subatomic particles to intergalactic space

Examine many marvels from atoms, black holes, snowflakes, violins, ocean tides, earthquakes, to examples of modern-day technology such as nuclear power plants, fuel cells, and lasers that owe their existence, in part, to the original work of physicists.

The application of science fundamentals

Physics, as one of the primary branches of science, focuses on matter and energy and interactions at the elementary level. The work of physicists has always been to explain natural phenomena in terms of the most basic models and show the hidden rules of nature.

In the classroom

The classroom fosters inspired learners, gaining conceptual and applied knowledge of fundamental physics, supported by extensive hands-on laboratory work.
