Be inspired by engaging stories of discovery from researchers at Queen’s University. IGnite is accessible to anyone curious enough to attend - a spark to inspire families and the Kingston community.

Professor of Astroparticle Physics Aaron Vincent will give a talk titled “What is the flavour of a cosmic neutrino,” a detective story to understand some of the most energetic particles ever seen in the Universe. Professor of Aboriginal Education Lindsay Morcom will give a talk titled “Niinwi-Giinwaa-Giinwi: Moving from We and You to Us,” focusing on ally-building in teacher education. Two students doing related work will also give brief presentations on how they are involved in this research.

The evening talks begin at 6:30pm and are followed by a reception featuring some light snacks. Explore exhibits by the Queen’s Hyperloop Design Team, The Queen’s Observatory and the Kingston astronomy club, as well as the Art of Research and Global Physics Photowalk Exhibits, the dark matter experiment NEWS-G, the always popular particle cloud chamber from the McDonald Institute Visitor Centre, and take the opportunity to connect with the speakers and others who are doing inspiring research at Queen’s.

**Note tickets do not secure a seat during the talks, so please arrive early.**

**Photos will be taken at the event. Please let a member of the McDonald Institute Team know if you would like to not have your photo taken.**
