Visualizing Physics

Justin RuskIn Autumn Quarter 2009 and Winter Quarter 2010, the Physics Department worked with Karen Gutowsky-Zimmerman, Professor of Visual Communication, and her class to develop new visual representations of physics concepts.

This collaboration encouraged visual communications students to think through the ways that physics works in the everyday world, and it deepened the Physics Department’s understanding of the value of the visual representation of scientific models. Check out some of the students’ final projects!
