Physics Summer Program - Advanced (10th-12th Grade)

SG SpaceTime

The advanced physic summer program jumps into the exciting world of modern physics. Participants learn about topics ranging from relativity to antimatter, biophysics, quantum mechanics, physical uncertainty, quantum computing and more. The program is filled with hands-on lab activities, visits to cutting-edge research labs, discussions with professors and graduate students who conduct modern physics research and a project to make the discussions of modern topics tangible. Students are introduced to topics that they will likely not be offered in their high school classes, from the thought experiments of Einstein to current applications in code breaking.
