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!
