Each week/lesson we'll look at a different aspect of what physicists have learnt through the 20th and 21st century.

These topics are open to student suggestion, but could include:

*Quantum mechanics and where it comes from
*The speed of light and the weirdness that arises from it
*Particle Physics and what's happening at the Large Hadron Collider
*Astrophysics and the big bang - and how we know what happened happened.
*Getting down with gravity
*Nuclear Fission and Fusion and the future of clean energy
