World Class Event
Quantum to Cosmos Festival Puts Physics on Centre Stage
Free tickets still available to family fun exhibit centre but book soon!
Waterloo - Just three weeks from now, Perimeter Institute’s 10th anniversary science celebration, the Quantum to Cosmos: Ideas for the Future Festival, will take a global audience from the strange subatomic world to the outer frontiers of the universe.
In addition to comprehensive online content accessible worldwide at q2cfestival.com , the on-site guests visiting the Festival from October 15-25, in Waterloo, Ontario, can take full advantage of the Physica Phantastica Exhibit experience.
Inside the Physica Phantastica Exhibit, over 6000 square feet of exciting science activities and family fun will include:
- A full-scale model of the next Mars Rover, scheduled to blast off to Mars in 2011,
- An ultra-high definition 3D theatre that puts viewers in the midst of colliding galaxies,
- Creative hands-on fun with origami and its connection to the design of satellites,
- Superconductivity as demonstrated through a model magnetic levitation train set,
- Two live stage shows demonstrating fun and fascinating physics concepts!
In the Quantum Stage Show, science fans and the generally curious of all ages will find out what happens when lots of liquid nitrogen, balloons and lasers are mixed. In just 12-minutes, a number of eye-popping demonstrations will introduce the world of quantum physics through the amazing properties of liquid nitrogen a liquid that boils at minus 196 degrees Celsius.
Across the tent at the Cosmos Stage Show, brave volunteers from the audience can climb into a two-seater gyroscope and, as they spin backward and forward, learn how the forces at work in their bodies are connected to the most distant galaxies. This mysterious cosmic connection is related to some of the deepest questions human beings are currently asking about our universe.
