UWA Albany Public Lecture : Einstein’s Universe: bringing modern science into schools Other events...
The Einstein-First Project teaches the fundamental concepts of modern physics to school students and works to improve STEM involvement in the classroom. The Einstein-First project began by developing innovative methods for teaching school age children the concepts of Einsteinian physics – curved space, warped time, photons, black holes and quantum entanglement. The project led to an international research collaboration and a new partnership with education authorities and Western Australian primary and secondary schools, that is developing and implementing an Einsteinian science curriculum from Years 3 to 10. Starting with foundations, it is building a seamless progression of learning that will allow all students to appreciate the Einsteinian reality that underpins our conception of the world and our modern technologies. The project will enable the Australian curriculum to be modernised so that all Australian children can share our best understanding of physical reality and, through the international collaboration, bring the new curriculum to children across the world. test
