S668: Phase Transitions and the Higgs Boson in Splash Fall 2019 (Nov. 02, 2019)
In primary school, we are taught that there are three phases of matter: solids, liquids, and gases. Fortunately for us, the universe is much more interesting than this! In this class, we learn how to define phases of matter by defining the means by which we transition between phases! Moreover, we see how phase transitions are everywhere in physics and lead to the existence of sounds waves and the Higgs Boson.

S529: The Best Bits of Quantum Information in Splash Spring 19 (Mar. 16, 2019)
Information seems to be a concept that plays an important role in everything we do. When we talk to people, we share information. When we write, we record information. When we spill stuff on our computers, we destroy information! But what is information? To answer this question, we use the lens of Quantum Mechanics and attempt to convey how information may be the heart of modern science!
