"A Voyage to the Boundaries of Theoretical Physics" is an outreach project sponsored by the Swiss National Science Foundation. Our goal is to give high-school students an insight into the research of contemporary high-energy theoretical physics. We want to explain both scientists are studying and how the research is conducted in practice. For this reason, we have prepared two animated videos in collaboration with the YouTube channel Kurzgesagt. The videos are available in English, French, German and Italian and are accompanied by a little booklet which will assist teachers who want to present the videos in class.
We have produced two videos on contemporary high-energy theoretical physics:
This project is lead by Dr. Alessandro Sfondrini, a researcher at ETH Zurich. Alessandro is a theoretical physicist working on string theory. He is supported by a scientific committee consisting of physicists from all over Europe:
This outreach project is funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation under the Agora scheme, project number is 171622. It is be partially co-financed by the SNF project 141869, NCCR SwissMAP: The Mathematics of Physics.
