Physics Ph.D. thesis, for children

hancock.jpgDr Hancock began writing children’s books on quantum physics theories last year after completing her thesis.

She has already completed one children’s story featuring Ellie the Electron and there are many more in the pipeline.

“I had a burst of inspiration, and two hours later my thesis had been transformed into a story for kids,” she says.

So says a press release issued by Monash University. Dr. Hancock is now at the Helsinki University of Technology.
