Scales of science
I’m bogged down at the moment writing up, so hopefully a picture will be worth words. The above comes from a set of physics outreach lectures I gave a few years ago (a “masterclass” in UK parlance). Every child should see a diagram like this at least once. It puts the different sciences in context to one another.
For more advanced students one can say words like “effective theory.” For even more advanced students one can say words like “renormalisation group.”
