Nobel Laureate Visit

On December 12th, we have the honor of a visit from the 2016 Nobel Prize winner in Physics, Duncan Haldane.  Students will have a chance to hear his ideas and have a chance to ask questions.

Since this coincides with the areas that we are studying at the moment, this could be a great opportunity to see where the subjects that you are studying at the moment are headed.
