Van Hise Elementary Science Night

outreach event • 4747 Waukesha St. Madison, WI 53705

WIPAC will be at Van Hise Elementary's Science Night on Friday April 28th from 6:00-8:00pm. Van Hise's Science Night is an interactive, kid-focused event, including:

Student-based projects (created outside of the classroom) where students can explore and share what they think is fun and exciting about science. (Not a competition!)

Adult-scientist led stations that include fun, hands-on exhibits and/or educational materials or a poster session about a field or area of interest.

IceCube will have several interactive activities at the science night to teach childre and adults about the strangest and biggest telescope in the world!

10:00am to 3:00pm

IceCube at Science Expeditions 2017

outreach event • Discovery Building in Madison, WI

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

Apply to the astrophysics student summer internship

outreach event • WIPAC. 222 W. Washington Ave. Suite 500. Madison, WI, 53705

Join the WIPAC team at UW–Madison and engage in physics, programming, math and science communication. We are looking for a few creative and skilled high school students to work with us during the summer of 2017. Apply by April 15, 2017.

Learn what different cosmic messengers can tell us about the universe. We work with data from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, the DECO app and other telescopes on Earth and on satellites.

Work in a team and improve your communications skills.

Our ideal students are entering 11 or 12 grade in the fall. They are interested in subjects such as physics, astronomy, computer science or statistics.

TO APPLY, send an email describing your experiences and interest in the position to silvia.bravo at icecube.wisc.edu. This is a paid internship with a minimum commitment of 4 weeks, although 6 weeks is preferred.
