Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2018-2019.

The world around us is constantly in motion: from the random thermal jostling of atoms to the swimming of bacteria, or the dancing of a ballerina these motions depend strongly on the size of the moving object. What physical laws govern motions on these different length scales? Our class will approach this question from an experiential point of view making use of in class demonstrations, movies, and extracurricular projects where students will construct simple experiments. The course is aimed to spark the curiosity of the general non-science student to engage with and explore the world around them. 

When Offered Fall.
