Location: YouTube:

Date: December 16, 2020

Time: 7:00pm - 8:45pm

Tune in on YouTube and be inspired by the stories of discovery from researchers at Queen’s University. The event features free food for thought, behind the scene science tours and demos, and two short talks by Queen’s faculty and their students. The speakers will give a short presentation on their area of study and what inspired them into this work.

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 your family and our brilliant Kingston community.

Join us to hear from Geology Professor Matthew Leybourne and Astroparticle Physicist Professor Ryan Martin. Students doing related work will also speak, with plenty of opportunity for questions and discussions.

The event will begin at 7:00 pm.
