The three best graduate theses from JKU degree programs in Technical Physics, Nanoscience and Technology, Biophysics, and Teacher Education Studies in Physics have been submitted to a selective jury, namely an audience of school students. The presentations have been designed to be simple, funny, and show that cutting-edge physics is not only incredibly exciting, but can also be explained in a way that everyone can understand it.

By the way: You can vote for your favorite finalist in person or online!

We would like to introduce the finalists. Meet Michael Ammann here, opens an external URL in a new window, and click here, opens an external URL in a new window to meet Franziska Maier.
