Gain a greater understanding of the interconnectedness of everything we can see and know in this universe. Think about the most exciting modern technologies that you have heard about in the news, such as trains that levitate above tracks, “invisibility cloaks" that bend light around them, and microscopic robots that fight cancer cells in our bodies. All of these groundbreaking advancements, commonplace or unbelievable, rely on the principles of physics.
Aside from playing a significant role in technology, professionals such as engineers, pilots, physicians, physical therapists, electricians, and computer programmers apply physics concepts in their daily work. Physics principles are propelling new, exciting technologies, and these principles are applied in a wide range of careers.
