Quantum Frontiers: Dark Matter, Dark Energy, Antimatter and Particle Physics!
Quantum Physics for Kids
Explore exciting frontiers of quantum physics including dark matter, dark energy, antimatter and the Standard Model of Particle Physics in this engaging STEM / STEAM course! (Homeschool / Afterschool) #academic
US Grade 3 - 6
This 4-session course introduces learners to intriguing concepts in quantum physics that represent some of the most cutting-edge areas of current scientific research! In addition, this course moves beyond the 3 most commonly-known subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons) to discuss the 16 subatomic particles in the Standard Model, which is the theoretical framework used by modern physicists. The course includes a wide variety of sensory activities, including educational...
In Session 1, students will learn about: - Observational evidence of Dark Matter - Current scientific theories about Dark Matter - Research experiments attempting to detect Dark Matter In Session 2, students will learn about: - Observational evidence of Dark Energy - Current scientific theories about Dark Energy In Session 3, students will learn about: - Additional subatomic elementary particles beyond the proton, neutron and electron, including quarks, bosons and neutrinos - The Standard Model of Elementary Particles, the theoretical framework used by modern quantum physicists In Session 4, students will learn about: - Theories of anti-matter and anti-particles - Current research and production of anti-matter at large particle accelerators - Possible uses of anti-matter, such as warp speed space travel
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
Assessments OfferedLearner progress will be assessed through in-class discussion and a fun, end-of-class quiz.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
