Season 3, Episode 5 - From the Big Bang to Physics in the classroom; The real truth about Physics

On this episode, Syd is joined by Andrea, a Physics Teacher at UK Virtual School.  They discuss various topics in the realm of physics like aliens, the big bang and a whole bunch of other really cool stuff! They also discuss how Andrea found her love of physics in the first place.

3 Key things that Andrea outlines:

➡ In physics you have to have a logical mind, you have to dig deeper than many people would!

➡ Physics doesn't always have to be serious, some of the most "serious" physics topics are still SO much fun to learn about.

➡ Curiosity is the drive to want to learn physics.
