Teaching Physics (and more) with Niven


Earlier versions of this talk used a lot of different examples from different authors throughout the talk, but there is so much to discuss in Ringworld that I’ve focused almost entirely on it, and uncovered a few facets that I’ve not seen discussed before. If there’s time I’ll mention a few other books and/or stories before listing some resources for learning and teaching via SF, and as always, I’ll close with a final thought.
