MIT, elementary particles and STEAM

While teaching for 15 years summer school at MIT, I passed each day by an MIT bookstore with a special place reserved for its most famous son – Richard Feynman. 

IB students

While starting my physics studies 40 years ago, I was told to read three volumes of Feynman’s lectures, considered a “physics Bible” for any young student of physics (they are available in the IB Learning Centre).  

It seemed that life has made a full circle. Well, not quite – in a few weeks, I’ll be discussing with my Year 13 Physics students something known as Feynman diagrams – an ingenious way of demonstrating how elementary particles behave.  However, I will not forget to tell my students how an extraordinary person he was – not only a physicist but also an engineer, musician, painter – a true interdisciplinary reflection of what our STEAM programme is all about -  I invite you to see a BBC documentary called “No Ordinary Genius".
