  1. I can’t find it now but there was a nice link to the Perimeter Institute about teachers that had inspired a variety of physicists as well as a video about Shrodinger’s cat. I showed my class this am. They were impressed, I think and I opened up their horizons.


    • Thanks for your comment Leila. The cat video is near the bottom of the Perimeter link in the third blog post on STAOblog. Thanks for drawing my attention to it. It’s a nice simple description of the cat paradox. Definitely one of the best I’ve seen. Check it out everyone!
