Always wanted to let Schrodinger’s Cat out of the box? Want to explore the mysteries of light as a particle and a wave? Ever looked right at the electrons of an atom? Come to our Pizza, Particle and Wave event. We will explore the world of optics and dabble a bit in Quantum Theory. Each student will build an accurate spectrometer and use it to identify elements by their electron orbitals, recreate the famous dual-slit experiment that proved that light was both particle and wave, and learn how to make lenses and fiber optics with Knox Blox.
February 27, 6 PM – 8 PM
For middle and high school students (and adults!). $20/$25 member/nonmember. Event is full.
