Physics Legacies: departures and returns at the department of physics , Wed. Apr. 12, 2017 The Fields Institute
For a long time, the Physics Department at the University of Toronto has hosted a series of objects and instruments of great historical relevance. The first Electron Microscope of North America called U of T home for a long time, before being transported to The Science and Technology Museum in Ottawa; the impressive collection of Koenig’s Tuning forks was located in a dusty corner at teh entrance of teh department before being archived in the UTSIC collection. Join us as we discuss two projects that revisit the history behind these instruments and incorporate them into beautiful interactive installations. Welcome back TEM and Koenigs’ forks!
