Dr. Ben Still, University of London
"Particle Physics Brick by Brick"
Ben uses LEGO® blocks to create a uniquely visual and clear depiction of the way that our universe is put together and give perfect introduction to the enigmatic and fascinating world of quantum physics. The story starts with the Big Bang, moving along to the constructs and interactions within and among atoms and sub-atomic particles. Each LEGO block represents a different atomic or sub-atomic particle. The different colours and size denote what that particle is and its relationship with the other ‘building blocks’. Ben Still is a physicist at the University of London. Alongside his research career, Ben has been an advocate of new methods of communicating physics. He will be available after the talk for a book signing.
