About DART of PHYSICS

Science isn’t about memorising equations and battling with proofs – it’s how we see, and understand and shape the world around us. Over the course of eight weeks, starting on the 21st of October 2013, we’ll turn Dublin’s DART into our own laboratory and get the city thinking and talking about physics.

Discover and learn scientific concepts through tricky teasers, mind-melting facts and seemingly illogical questions that will be scattered throughout the DART. All you’ll have to do is look around you on your journey.

And if you want to know more, that’s what this website is for. Updated throughout the campaign, we’ll be blogging, responding to your questions and releasing interactive, illustrated stories that go deeper into the the lessons on the DART.

We promise you, this will not be the physics you avoided in school.

DART of PHYSICS originated from the Designs for Learning prize organised by Science Gallery and is supported by Trinity College Dublin, SFI, Intel, Irish Rail Metro Herald, iQ Content and Institute of Physics.
