Want to go even further than our workshops this summer? Join us to explore content and activities for your classroom, connect with other teachers, ask questions of Outreach staff, and learn from researchers working at the cutting edge of modern physics at our Online Teachers’ Camp from July 5-9, 2021.
High school students who are thinking deeply about gravity, black holes, or quantum mechanics should check out www.issyp.ca for all the details on the International Summer School for Young Physicists. Applications will close on March 31! You can share this opportunity on Twitter and Facebook.
Live Webcast: The Invisible Universe
A hundred years ago, we believed that our own galaxy, the Milky Way, constituted the entire universe. We believed that the universe was stagnant. We did not know about the constituents of the universe – dark matter and dark energy – and we believed that we were special.
At the time, cosmological research relied on Newton’s conceptions of gravity. Since then, discoveries in modern physics, the triumphs of Einstein’s theory of general relativity, and the confluence of these ideas and instruments have completely transformed our understanding of space and time.
Today, we know that the universe is a dynamic and restless place, containing a billion galaxies or more. In her live lecture webcast on March 3 at 7 pm ET, astrophysicist Priyamvada Natarajan will guide the audience through what we currently know about the nature of these exotic components of the universe.Read more.
