The Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona (ICCUB) will participate in the 8th UB Science Fest. The event, that aims to celebrate science and education, will take place on the historical Building of the University of Barcelona on May 27 and 28, 2022.

The ICCUB is bringing two interactive workshops to the programme so attendants can learn physics in a hands-on, experimental way.

WORKSHOP: «QUANTUM MECHANICS SIMULATIONS»

This workshop consists on running a series of computer simulations of a number of experiments where matter’s quantum properties are manifest. Discover the most intriguing phenomena of quantum mechanics such as the tunnel effect, Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle or the double-slit experiment by playing with our quantum systems simulations.

When? From 9 to 14h

Where? Historical building of the University of Barcelona

WORKSHOP: «THE FORCE THAT BINDS US TOGETHER»

The main character of this workshop is the strong nuclear force, which keeps the particles and subparticles that form matter bound together. Using dynamic puzzles, you will get a very visual understanding of the laws that combine these particles at the scale of atomic nuclei, protons and neutrons and at the scale of their subparticles, the quarks.
