"Physics Reimagined : new ways to popularize and teach physics" 


Julien Bobroff, University Paris-Sud, France


Our research group develops new tools and media to popularize fundamental physics. These materials are mostly created through collaborations between physicists and designers, illustrators, and videographers. I will describe the process we follow, through a few examples from our recent projects. I will also discuss how this unusual alliance of design and physics contributes to the study of interdisciplinary collaboration. Finally, I will describe new methods inspired by design school, for teaching physics at the university level.
