Students will be introduced to special relativity, and will look at the differences between Galileo's concept of motion and that used in special relativity. In the afternoon session, students will carry out practical investigations of the geometrical properties of curved surfaces. This conference has been offered in previous years, but will be further developed this year in the light of previous experience.
