Physics Slam and Public Lecture

Physics Slam and Public Lecture

The structures of the natural and built environment are subject to forces and loads that can affect how they are designed. Whether you’re an architect or a fan of science (no need to be a scientist), then this event is for you!

Come see five particle physicists from around the world put on a show about the mysteries of the universe. In a high-energy competition, they’ll share the mysteries of dark matter and dark energy, shine a light on ghostly neutrinos, and uncover the very structure of the universe.

Free and open to the public!

Seating is limited. Register here:

Moderator: Tim Skilling, WGN

Physicists: Renee Hlozek – University of Toronto, Mariel Pettee – Yale University, Dan Hooper – University of Chicago/Fermilab, Clara Nellist – LAL-Orsay/IN2P3/CNRS, Chris Marshall – University of Rochester

  • It seems that it was a really interesting lecture and I am looking for the video records. Can someone share them? I am preparing for my Physics assignment and hired an expert from resource to help me with the assignment, but I would like to dig deeper and get more theoretical knowledge on this subject.
