  Description Dark matter, string theory, and high energy particle accelerators. Do you need to be a Ph.D. from MIT to understand these things? Physics of the 21st Century, funded by Annenberg Media, is an upcoming, free, online resource covering the frontiers of physics research. Developed by the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and designed by Harvard professor of astronomy and physics, Christopher Stubbs along with leading content experts, the multimedia course will connect the new ideas of contemporary physics with familiar ideas from classical physics. This workshop will introduce the course materials (to be released in fall 2010) including video profiles of research teams working on superconducting materials and the course Web site. The goal of the materials is to help both teachers and the public better understand and appreciate the science behind the headlines of physics breakthroughs.
