Join us live at the 2021 Carnival of Light to celebrate the UNESCO-sponsored International Day of Light (IDL) in Canada. This exciting event will take place on Gather.Town, and feature live demonstrations, presentations from Canadian researchers about the importance of light in their research, and a quantum optics lab tour.
The Carnival of Light will take place on the final day of the STEM Expo: Friday May 21st, from 12-3pm EST. Please register for the event (a Gather.Town link will be sent to registrants on the day-of) and to enter your name to win an at-home optics experiment kit!
