Speaker: Dr Ben Still, Queen Mary, University of London

Abstract:

Ben Still uses LEGO blocks to create a uniquely visual and clear depiction of the way 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, and along the way, the constructs and interactions within and among atoms and sub-atomic particles, and the forces that play upon them with each LEGO block representing 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'.


Dr 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 has worked with artists, designers, and illustrators to show complex physics research topics in a new light. Ben also teaches science in schools and develops innovative methods of classroom teaching. He is the author of Brains Explains: Quantum Physics and The Secret Life of the Periodic Table.
