Atlantic Universities Physics & Astronomy Conference (AUPAC)

On February 3rd 2017, members of the Acadia Physics Society departed Wolfville, Nova Scotia, to attend the Atlantic Universities Physics & Astronomy Conference (AUPAC). Every year AUPAC is hosted by a different Atlantic university, this year the conference took place at the University of Prince Edward Island from February 3rd to February 5th. The conference offers undergraduate students an opportunity to present their research in front of a panel of judges. Acadia University’s very own Dillon Burgess, Alejandra Fuentes, Miriam Hewlett, Ryan MacGibbon, and Thalia Magyar presented their research at the conference. This event also offered opportunities to meet with professors from universities across Canada, allowing students to make connections with potential supervisors for graduate school. Research conducted by professors from the Atlantic universities was also presented, providing insight to students interested in those fields.
