String Theroy

I visited one of Jacobs merit badge classes. I was not extremely excited about the class and the way it was taught. At lunch one of the other boys in Jacobs’s class sat next to Jacob. I asked the young man about the class. He thought he was teaching the class the way he was told to teach the class and if it needed to be better, the adults could let him know what to do.

Jacob asked the other boy what is the string theory. Apparently the other boy had mentioned it in the merit badge class and Jacob had heard it mentioned on the Science Cannel. The other boy started to tell Jacob about quantum mechanics and the theory of relativity, one dealing on a molecular level and the other on a level of the universe. Jacob and the other boy continued the conversation for some time. I felt like I was in the twilight zone and sifted from a simple merit badge class to another universe.
