1st Electronic Conference on Universe Feb – 2021

Participants presented their findings in this unique session about “Teaching Relativity and Modern Physics in General”. This was a part of a five days on-line conference of leading physicists and educators from around the world. In 2021, this conference commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Andrei D. Sakahrov, and UNESCO has nominated this year A.D. Sakharov year.

INAUGURAL EINSTEIN-FIRST INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP

 

This month, Einstein-First in Perth, Australia, will host an international conference on teaching Einsteinian physics in schools everywhere. Researchers from Norway, Israel, South Korea, China, Brazil, Italy, and Germany will present their findings. The Keynote Speaker, Magdalena Kersting (Norway), will give a lecture on “Impact in Einsteinian Physics Education”.  The event will be held at the University of Western Australia (UWA) and will end with a visit to the Australian International Gravitational Observatory, near Gingin, north of Perth. Shon Boublil, a physics Ph.D. student at UWA will give a workshop on teaching Einstein theory of gravity.

Shachar Boublil wins Scientific Poster Presentation Award in Einstein Physics Education in Germany

“General Relativity as a Challenge for Physics Education” at the Physikzentrum Bad

Shachar Boublil, a graduate student of professor Chantal Pouliot, was selected to take part in a unique international conference on “General Relativity as a Challenge for Physics Education” at the Physikzentrum Bad Honnef which is run by the German Physics Society. Albert Einstein was the President of this Society from 1916-1918. This one week seminar and conference assembled a very special group of physicists from around the world to discuss the need for change in how we learn and teach physics at the high school and undergraduate level. It focuses on the need to integrate Einstein theories and modern physics in school’s curriculum. Shachar is now completing his Masters in Physics Education at Laval University.
