The Birth of the Atom - from a Quantum Theory Point of View

Telling the history of the birth of the atom as a piece of theater.

One of the possible ways to present this quantum concept of the atom to our students consists in telling them the history of the development of these ideas using a Power Point presentation. I imagine 3 acts (like a "piece of theater") with important persons (all of them are Nobel prize laureates) who solve the problems.

See the Power Point presentation (in French) here: AtomeQuantique.ppt.

You can find the three posters from the festival here:
