Center for Ultracold Atoms Hands-on Demos

April 19 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

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.

Cost: Free. Drop in.
