In this course we'll start by taking a look at the Physics that made Einstein famous - Special Relativity. Some understanding of Pythagoras' Therom would be helpful - but if you're happy just to admire the beauty of the mathematics that's fine too.

From there we could take a look at what and how we know about the Universe's expansion.

Having looked at the very big, it might make sense to have a look at the very small - and delve into the world of the Quantum.

Nothing in this course is fixed so if you have ideas about what you want to look at, bring them along and we'll see what we can do.

We could take a look at how bikes balance or we could try and show that the world revolves. That would make my day!
