What is Einsteinian physics?
Einsteinian physics is a branch of modern physics that comprises our current-bast understanding of the universe.
The term “Einsteinian physics” is a semantic convenience and stems from Albert Einstein’s fundamental role in developing both the theory of relativity and quantum mechanics.
Einsteinian physics is based on these two theories that describe space, time, and gravity at cosmic scales and the interactions of matter at subatomic scales.

Teaching Einsteinian Physics in Schools is designed as a resource for teacher education students, science teachers & for anyone interested in a scientifically accurate description of physical reality at a level appropriate for school education.
Despite our better knowledge, physics in schools is often taught from an outdated point of view. One century after Einstein revolutionised our worldview, physics educators are catching up. This essay argues for the need to modernise the physics curriculum.
The research project
Einstein-First is creating an evidence-based curriculum that takes students on a journey of modern discovery. Starting with foundations, the Einstein-First curriculum resolves the disconnect between science in schools and science of the modern world.
