The Einstein-First Project | Every child has the right to share our best understanding of physical reality

The Einstein-First project began by developing innovative methods for teaching school-age children the concepts of Einsteinian physics – curved space, warped time, photons, black holes and quantum entanglement. The project led to an international research collaboration and a new partnership with education authorities and Western Australian primary and secondary schools, that is developing and implementing an Einsteinian science curriculum from Years 3 to 10.

Mr. Patrick Gorman MP’s visit at UWA
The Einstein-First team was excited to host Mr. Patrick Gorman MP’s visit at UWA. The team had a productive discussion with him about the project and showed him a few activities. Mr. Gorman was very supportive of the initiative.
