Center for Ultracold Atoms – Hands-on Demonstrations

April 19 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free

At extremely low temperatures, the fundamental building blocks of the universe behave unexpectedly. Discover this hidden world at The Center for Ultracold Atoms (CUA). Activities include a gum-drop model Ion Trap, experiments with Liquid Nitrogen to see how ultracold temperatures change everyday objects, and a station to make your own holograms that you can take home!

The event will kick off with a short talk, followed by interactive demonstrations.

Cost: Free. Drop-in.
