Science Snippets: Physics of Particles, Trains, and the Universe

Tuesday, March 09, 2021 at 4:30pm to 6:00pm

Virtual Event

Ever curious what goes on behind closed lab doors? Join us for short talks by MIT researchers about everything from DNA to dark matter and beyond. After each presentation, the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions of the speaker.

This online event is designed for people with little or no previous background in the topics.  We especially welcome high school students with an interest in science and technology.  Attendance is free, but registration is required. All are welcome.

This session will feature three talks:
"Bounce, Stick, Bury: Different behaviors when tiny particles take a hit"
Ahmed A. Tiamiyu
Materials Science

"Unveiling the mysteries of our universe with quantum devices"
Edwin Pedrozo Penafiel
Research Laboratory for Electronics

"Fast Floating Trains"
Rachel Yang
