The award "is dedicated to teaching projects and initiatives which were developed at ETH during its semesters of remote teaching", as the Lecturer's Conference of ETH Zurich (KdL) states. It acknowledges our efforts to maintain a high didactical level of education despite restrictions such as lockdowns or unavailability of equipment.

We are overwhelmed to have received this award, and we would like to express our gratitude towards all the motivated and enthusiastic teaching assistants which, in the first hours and days of the lockdown, spent countless hours to help the physics lab switching to a remote format. In the spirit of making physics experiments available to a broad audience without the need for expensive and dedicated equipment, we share some of our prize-winning experiments below.
