Physics III, grades 10-12.

This course will introduce the students to the frontiers of modern physics. We will be discussing quantum mechanics, elementary particles, dark matter. Carleton University has a strong research group in Particle Physics, and we tapped into their expertise when designing this course. Carleton’s physicists contributed to building detectors at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN (Geneva) and participated in experiments leading to the discovery of the Higgs boson. Carleton’s team also played an important role at the Sudbury Neutrino Observatory. The discovery of neutrino oscillation at the Sudbury experiment has lead to the Nobel Prize in Physics awarded to the team leader Prof. Art McDonald.

Physics III course will be taught by a PhD student from Carleton Particle Physics group, who will bring insights from the current research work straight to our classroom!
