Mechanics Academy is partially broken because thinkbot is being reworked. Like a pair of phoenixes, they’ll both rise from the ashes soon. As in eventually.

Quantum theory governs the universe at its most basic level. In the first half of the 20th century physics was turned on its head by the radical discoveries of Max Planck, Albert Einstein, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schroedinger. An entire new logical and mathematical foundation---quantum mechanics---eventually replaced classical physics. We will explore the quantum world, including the particle theory of light, the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, and the Schrödinger Equation.
