We will utilize resources from The Perimeter Institute to investigate Quantum Reality as well as The Expanding Universe.

Quantum physics has revolutionized our understanding of nature and helped catapult humanity into the information age. It describes the subatomic world, including protons, neutrons, and electrons, with phenomenal accuracy. Quantum physics gives us deep insight into the building blocks of the universe.

The Expanding Universe includes such topics as emission spectra, black holes, the redshift of galaxies, the Big Bang theory, the expanding universe, nucleosynthesis, and the CMB radiation. All of these are linked to common curriculum-related topics beyond astronomy, for example, sound, waves, and gravity.
