The Magic of Physics
More than 50 years ago the futurist and science fiction writer, Arthur C. Clarke, proposed what has been become known as his third law. "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Imagine the reaction of someone from 200 years ago suddenly finding themselves at Kennedy Space Center or in one of the Orlando theme parks. It is a place filled with wonder, excitement – and magic. There is physics behind the magic, be it space flight or thrill rides. The 2014 Winter Meeting “The Magic of Physics” celebrates the union of Physics and Orlando – the wonder and excitement that is physics.
This meeting offers an excellent opportunity for members, colleagues, and future physicists from around the world to participate in physics workshops, meet and greet other physics educators, form networks nationally and locally, engage exhibitors and learn about the latest physics resources.
We look forward to seeing you in Orlando!
