Quantum physics

It is most likely that this will be a topic that is completely unfamiliar to all students from pre-16 level courses. It is also one where the impact on everyday life is apparently very limited and where students think that they have no direct experience of its consequences. Nothing could be further from the truth: e.g. all modern electronics relies on quantum physics.

However these very facts make it a most fascinating subject and one whose very novelty should attract the interest of your students.
