City of Physics

The City of Physics campaign ran across a four week period, from 26 October to 19 November 2015, with the expectation of turning notices on buses, the DART and on the street into a vibrant celebration of physics.

The idea behind the campaign was to bring simple physics to life, to spark curiosities and ask people to consider Physics as part of our culture. Have you ever wondered why the metal pole on the DART feels colder than the seat? This campaign will encourage the people of Dublin to ask themselves simple questions like that, whose answers are routed in Physics, using a selection of insightful quotes and questions that will be accompanied by illustrations created by Irish illustrators, in order to bring the question to life.

This a not-for-profit educational project directed by Dr Shane Bergin (School of Physics, TCD) and Dr Aoibhinn Ní Shúilleabháin (School Of Mathematics & Statistics, UCD).
