Education

MUST Education goals emerged from NCCR MUST Education Day 2011
8th December, Uni Geneva


From 2011 - 2016 Education Outreach involved:
  • Competitions for PhD students and Postdocs for the best ideas for experiments to demonstrate ultrafast science to the public or schoolchildren: 2013 and 2014
 
  • The creation of a collection of 7 portable educational tools in ultrafast science, which can be used by our PIs
 
  • The publication in January 2016 of a  Power of Ten book to demonstrate ultrafast science through relative timescales.
 
  • Work with schools and teachers using our educational experiments eg. ETH Zurich Teacher Day, 13 November 2015 and University of Bern Open Day, 1-2 December 2015
