Poster showing the speakers for the event

Tune in on YouTube and be inspired by the stories of discovery from researchers at Queen’s University. The speakers and their students will tell a short story from their research and feature behind-the-scenes science tours, and two short talks by Queen’s faculty and their students.

Our speakers are selected not only for their accomplishments but also for their ability to give engaging presentations and tell the story of their research to a wide variety of audiences. This makes IGnite accessible to anyone curious enough to attend. IGnite hopes to be the spark that inspires you and your family.

Join us to hear from an astroparticle physicist who travels to Antarctica to study the highest energy cosmic accelerators, and from a biomechanical engineer who studies how people move through time and space. Students doing related work will speak as well, and we’ll have plenty of time for audience questions and discussions.

The event will begin at 7:00 pm.
