Gravitation to Levitation: Physics from Supernova to Superconductor (Session 1)

Program(s): Immersion

This course introduces students to the foundational concepts of fundamental interactions and its varied applications, such as gravity, electromagnetism, light, particle physics, and quantum mechanics. Students will see how the laws of physics are universal and how the principles of physics can help us understand a range of phenomena from black holes to biology, superconductors to supernovas. The course will be taught in an inclusive and interactive method, with an emphasis on establishing strong conceptual foundations and their application to cutting-edge research.
