Event description: 

Did you know that if you throw a ball at a wall there is a very, very, very small chance it will simply pass right through it instead of bouncing off it? Do you think light is a particle or a wave? How can you tell? Physicists at the turn of the last century were startled to find that nature is not what it seemed. In this session we’ll explore all the wacky ways that Quantum mechanics actually best describes the world around us. Snacks and lunch will be served.

Free admission. Open to middle school girls. 100 spots reserved for Pathways Scholars, but students outside the program are encouraged to register at gsi.yale.edu! Snacks and lunch will be served.

The mission of Girls’ Science Investigations (GSI) is to motivate, empower, and interest girls in developing the skills they need to pursue careers in science. This series occurs four times per year, each with its own theme.
