The study of physics encompasses everything about our physical world.

It explains and quantifies the nature of the universe through observing how particles of matter interact in space and time, from the smallest quantum particle to the behavior of entire galaxies. This quest to understand the nature of matter has led to numerous technological advances, and can be applied to a number of possible educational paths, leading to careers in technology research and development, computer design, medicine, engineering, and of course, in physics research and teaching.
