Physics Ph.D. candidates Nicolas Scozzaro and Hiran Wijesinghe were awarded a 2016 Student Project Grant from Tech Hub for their app, “Physics is Beautiful.” The award is a $2,000 grant to continue developing their project: an interactive website/app of physics lessons presented in a game-like environment. Scozzaro approached the Center to request minor/administrative support to get the collaborative idea off the ground, and CEM is proud to have supported their innovative and successful idea.
