Einstein's Universe, California, 10-11

A hundred years ago Dr. Albert Einstein, a nonconformist and curious scientist shocked the world with a new and different way of understanding the forces of the universe. Interestingly, Einstein did not do a single experiment to make his discovery. Instead, he used his imagination and did thought experiments. To understand the greatness and beauty of his work, we will start with the common scientific principles of his time by experimenting hands-on with electricity, waves and Newton’s laws. We will then step into Einstein’s shoes and bring to life the same visuals he used to test his ideas: springs, balloons, elevators, trains and more. With our new understanding of his theory, we will try to wrap our heads around the expansion of the universe, black holes and time warps. At the end of the week we will have a Relativity Party to test if time really does move faster when you are having fun! 

Led by Leonard Bloch, Ph.D., who is a middle school science teacher.  He previously taught both at the elementary school and college levels. Dr. Bloch holds a Doctor of Philosophy in Science Education from the University of Georgia, a M.A. in Social Studies Education from UC Berkeley, and a B.A. in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania.
