Research Slam! at Morehead's Science Stage July 11, 2015

Join student researchers from UNC's computational astronomy and physics summer program for "Research Slam!" on July 11, 2015 (2:30-3:30 p.m.), on Morehead's Science Stage. This program features a series of three-minute teaser presentations by student researchers featuring their current work, plus fun interactive activities to help you discover your inner computer researcher!

"Research Slam!" topics range from probing how cell nuclei respond to micro-mechanical forces to flight-testing the first medieval flying machine (which was airborne 1,000 years before the Wright brothers) to tracking the cosmic life cycle, from the primordial seeds of the first stars to the radioactive dust of exploded stars recycled into new solar systems. This program is free and appropriate for school-age children and adults.
