Limited Capacity seats available

In 2015 the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory (LIGO) detected gravitational waves emitted by the merger of two black holes 1.3 billion years ago. In that one detection LIGO both confirmed the existence of gravitational waves and opened the doors to gravitational wave astronomy. Dion was lucky enough to participate and present at the first International Physics and Astronomy Educator Program at LIGO Hanford. Come learn a little about gravitational waves and leave with some hands on activities to do with your physics students.
