1 Book 1 Topic – A Book Review: Physics of the Future

Each year, the Department of Basic English (DBE) students organize an event for the annual "One Book, One Topic" event at Atılım University. This year's selected book was "Physics of the Future" by Dr.Michio Kaku in which he provided valuable insight as to what future will bring us in the next 100 years. On June 8, 2017, seven students from DBE, who were selected amongst pre-intermediate and intermediate levels, made interactive mini presentations inspired by Dr. Kaku's ideas in the book. The event started with a short video, where the presenters interviewed and filmed other students in the campus about their thoughts of the far future. It was interesting to see how students could express their ideas smoothly in scientific areas in a language they had recently learned. The event continued with mini presentations on topics like; "Interplanetary civilizations", "Space Travel", "The Future of Energy", "Nanotechnology", "The Future of Education" and "Biotechnology". The presentations attracted around 200 listeners which included the Provost of Atılım University Prof. Hasan Akay and the translator of the book Hüseyin Oymak.
