Meet-Up (01/19) – “The Higgs and other particles that Matter”

The Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics are having a meet-up on Saturday, January 19th from 4:00 to 7:00pm at the Colonial Lanes/Cubs We'll be in the back room located down the short hallway past the bar.

Our special guest will be Dr. Sean Tulin, theoretical particle physicist.  Sean was one of our guests at last year's Scientists Fair.  Sean will help answer our questions and provide explanations for how theoretical particle physics provides insight into the laws of nature.

The first part of the event will be for general socializing and ordering refreshments. After which, there will be some announcements, and then there will be an informal conversation about particle physics

As a courtesy to the host and restaurant staff, please RSVP for you and other guests that you are bringing, so that I can provide an accurate tally.  Thanks!

    Suggest some form of visual aids. In this case a minimum of a chalk-board would have been beneficial.

    Dr. Tulin did a fantastic job of explaining very diverse and esoteric concepts in particle physics and cosmology, while highlighting his enthusiasm for the subject. Well thought questions from the group helped to lead to a great discussion. Definitely one of our most enjoyable meet-ups!

    It was a great session. Kudos to Chris and Janice for the format. I loved the informal Q&A format. Dr. Sean Tulin was brilliant. Very articulate in his answers and explanations. Very knowledgeable in a wide variety of particle physics areas.
    Very fascinating meetup.
