Have you ever looked at a flame dancing in the air and asked yourself what a flame really is? For instance, what happens when we burn firewood (matter) and thus change it to light and heat (energy). Simply speaking, when you ask such questions you are wondering about two physical quantities, light and matter. Clearly many over the history of time have thought about the interaction between light and matter, and some have thought more in depth in order to understand the basic phenomenon related to this interaction.

The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land promised to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Indigenous Initiatives Office.
