Age of the Universe Workshop

Have you ever wondered how we study objects in space?

Are you curious how we have determined how old the Universe is?

Are you considering going to university?

This summer, the University of Toronto and the Dunlap Institute of Astronomy and Astrophysics are holding a workshop for grade 11 and 12 students in the GTA which aims to provide a hands-on introduction to coding, lectures on cutting-edge astrophysics, and answers to your questions about university. The event will have talks from experts in the fields of globular clusters and cosmology, as well as an introduction to coding and the opportunity to use real telescope data to determine the age of the Universe! There will also be a panel with current undergraduate and graduate students to answer all your questions about applying to and attending university. We will provide computers, transit fares, and lunch to all attendees. Find more information and the registration link at:
