WIPAC is participating in the 2017 Science Expeditions, a family friendly, campus-wide open house running March 31-April 2nd
Experience the world of the neutrino, often called the weirdest particle in nature. Learn about the unique properties of the so called ghost particle that can pass through the Earth undeflected, and exist in three identities at the same time. Learn about how despite being born with a single identity, they can mutate into another neutrino identity when they are detected by experiments such as IceCube, the cubic-kilometer neutrino detector at the South Pole. From 10:00 am to 2:00 pm on Saturday, April 1, in the Discovery Building, 330 N. Orchard St.
Screenings of Chasing the Ghost Particle will also be shown in the Sterling Hall planetarium. The show lasts 30 minutes and is followed by an interactive planetarium show. No advanced tickets needed but space is limited to the first 25 people for each show. From 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Saturday, April 1, in the Sterling Hall planetarium, 475 N. Charter St.
Come join the fun! For more information about the campus-wide open house, visit the Science Expeditions website.
