Join Alice in the Quantum World!
Quantum physics for 6 to 12-year-olds - is that even possible? Of course it is! With the radio play "Alice in Quantum Land", the PhotonLab offers an entertaining, playful, and educational approach to the phenomena of quantum physics for elementary school pupils and onwards. The live premiere of the play took place as a reading by Veit Ziegelmaier (co-author/executive producer) and Sofie Silbermann on Sunday, June 26, 2022 at the fair "forscha" in Munich.
Alice in Quantum Land - A New Radio Play Series by The PhotonLab
The first episode of the radio play series "Alice in Quantum Land" is now available for listening. The episode entitled "A Cat Named Schrödinger" is the first in a series of radio plays based on the famous "Alice in Wonderland" by Lewis Caroll, in which the girl Alice and her rabbit Rabbit experience wondrous adventures in the quantum world. The very first episode involves tunneling through a wall. Furthermore, Alice meets a strange grinning cat named Schrödinger, who frees her from a box in which she was supposedly dead and alive. Schrödinger becomes her friend and companion on her trip through Quantum Land and the search for the missing Rabbit. And together they even start singing!
A cooperation project of the school lab "PhotonLab" at the Max-Planck-Institute for Quantum Optics (MPQ), the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich (LMU), the Munich-Center for Quantum Science and Technology (MCQST), the Munich Quantum Valley (MQV), and the Deutsches Museum.
