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, a 6-foot Tornado Simulator, experiments with Liquid Nitrogen to see how ultracold temperatures change everyday objects, and a station to make your own holograms.
The event will kick off with a short talk by Professor Martin Zwierlein, followed by interactive demonstrations. Located in MIT Bldgs. 26-214 & 26-210, 60 Vassar St., Cambridge.
