Physics for Grandma

Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Starting from Einstein's quote  "You do not really understand something unless you can explain it to your grandmother", our colleague François Arleo and his sister Roxane, who is illustrator, explained various aspects of physics in an amusing and very artistic way. How to explain particle physics to your grandma who has no clue about it?

Through a series of beautifully illustrated booklets, we progress step by step into the subatomic world...Three booklets have already been published :

  • Une soupe nommée plasma quarks-gluons
  • Un zoo particulier
  • La physique des particules tourne rond

On top of these booklets, conferences in high-schools and neighborhood houses are regularly scheduled.
