CERN wants to teach quantum physics to your kids… with Angry Birds (yes, THOSE Angry Birds)12 Oct, 2012
There’s a title we never thought we’d write, but guess who partnered up? CERN, them of the fundamental physics research and Rovio, them of the flying birds. In a joint statement issued at the Frankfurt Buchmesse, CERT Director General Rolf Heuer and Rovio CMO Peter Vesterbracka announced a plan to teach your toddlers all (well, a fair chunk of) what they need to know to become CERN researchers one day:
“Modern physics has been around for 100 years, but it’s still a mystery to many people. Working together with Rovio, we can teach kids quantum physics by making it fun and easy to understand,” said CERN’s Head of Education, Rolf Landua.
Here’s a pic of them together:

We are trying to reach Verstbacka to ask him how this collaboration will work exactly. (If anyone can give us a hand: please do). UPDATE: we had a short interview with Peter Vesterbacka about the CERN/Rovio collaboration.
