Is there any connection between the magical art of juggling and the boring science of physics? Surprisingly, the answer is yes, and Federico Benuzzi – physicist and juggler – will prove it again and again in this fascinating book.
In the beautiful set of Bologna, a teacher, a young girl, an old-age pensioner and a newly graduated boy will speak about their differences and their common interests, finding a new way to learn science, with real-life examples and spectacular games, such as juggling balls and diabolos. This book is fun, fluid, and inspiring (also particularly recommended for teachers). It stimulates the natural curiosity and will open your mind. Everyone can think as a physicist: you just have to ask yourself “why?”.
Federico Benuzzi holds a degree in Theoretical Physics and teaches Physics and Mathematics at a high school in Bologna, his home town. He is also a juggler and an actor and he uses his abilities in performances to popularize science. He also has written The loser’s law (La legge del perdente, Dedalo 2018).
