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
"Unveiling the mysteries of our universe with quantum devices"
Edwin Pedrozo Penafiel
