This event is suitable for Science teachers, PGCE students and technicians and is hosted by the Physics Network Coordinator Cerian Angharad.

Join the IOP, Professor Brian Foster, Oxford University and Jack Liebeck (professional violinist) for an twilight event of entertainment and networking. Tea will be served between 4.45pm and 5.15pm with an opportunity to network, followed by an inspirational talk.

Einstein’s Universe links Einstein’s favourite instrument, the violin, with atoms and subatomic particles, whose study he pioneered. Brian & Jack explain Einstein’s obsession with the violin and how his ideas have shaped our understanding of the evolution of the Universe. They explore our modern understanding of subatomic physics as carried out at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Switzerland. The lecture is
punctuated by musical interludes from some of Einstein’s favourite music.
