SLAC Features Physics for Campus Community

By Nina Adelman Stolar

Bring your friends and family to Stanford Community Day to explore programs and exhibits including Arts, Culture and Music, Athletics, Health, Science and Research. Events range from faculty lectures to children’s activities, centered around Serra Mall (near the top of the Oval) at the Stanford campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday, April 10.

Quantum Universe Exhibit Unveiled

Please join us in introducing our scientific research to the community. Modern-day Einsteins are still needed to be on hand to answer questions and conduct scientific demonstrations throughout the day for children of all ages. Look for us on the lawn area in front of Hoover Tower.

Highlighting the SLAC program, the Quantum Universe exhibit (http://interactions.org/quantumuniverse/) provides a preview of a revolution in 21st century particle physics. The exhibit describes a quantum leap in our understanding of the mystery and beauty of the universe.

Celebrating the World Year of Physics

Four Stanford physics professors will debate ‘The Greatest Achievement in Physics During the Last Century.’ Participants in the panel are Robert Byer (Hansen Experimental Physics Laboratory and Applied Physics), Andrei Linde (Physics); Nobel Laureate Douglas Osheroff (Physics) and Past APS President Helen Quinn (THP). They will present and defend what he/she believes to be the greatest physics achievement.
