IceCube winteovers public talk at Georgia Tech

outreach event • Clough Commons, 266 4th St. NW, Atlanta, GA 30313

Ever wonder what it would be like to live and work at one of the coldest, most remote places on Earth? James Casey and Martin Wolf can tell you all about it. They are adjusting to life in more moderate conditions after thirteen months operating the biggest and strangest telescope in the world, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory at the South Pole.

See incredible pictures of their exciting and challenging adventure, and learn what it takes to capture the almost invisible neutrino, nicknamed the ghost particle.

This free public outreach talk will take place at Georgia Tech in Atlanta and is co-sponsored by Georgia Tech School of Physics and IceCube.

Grandparents University at WIPAC

internal event • WIPAC

Grandparents University® is an intergenerational learning experience for children aged 7 to 14 who are accompanied by a grandparent(s) or older adult relative(s) who is not a parent. This program is supported by UW Alumni Association. A group of grandparents and their granchildren are coming to WIPAC for a fun filled 2-day outreach event.  We will be doing ice drilling competitions, talking about IceCube, detecting the invisible using sand boxes and much more.

GPU schedule at WIPAC: Thursday July 26 from 2:00-5:15pm and Friday July 27 from 9:00-12:15pm

Saturday, April 07 2018

10:00am to 2:00pm

WIPAC at 2018 Science Expeditions

outreach event • Discovery Building, 330 N Orchard St

WIPAC will be participating in the 2018 Science Expeditions, a family friendly, campus-wide open house running April 6-8, 2018. We will have an exploration station on Saturday April at Discovery building and will be presenting planetarium shows and "Chasing the Ghost Particle" at Sterling Hall from 11:00am-3:00pm (4 shows, 1 every hour)

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 7, in the Discovery Building, 330 N. Orchard St.

Come join the fun! For more information about the campus-wide open house, visit the Science Expeditions website
