will cover what would typically be covered in the first course of a year
long sequence of courses at a university. At the end of this course, one
should be able to understand the field content of a Lagrangian, understand
the interactions dictated by the theory, and calculate tree level
processes of the theory.

Creativity Unleashed

Join us for this *free* event hosted by CBC journalist Paolo Pietropaolo
in downtown Vancouver on 10th May, "Creativity unleashed".

The discussion panel includes TRIUMF's very own Beatrice Franke as well
as other local talent. GAPS will also be represented.

Please register here:

More details below!

==========================================================

Abstract:
From science to music, to product design, to community building, to
entrepreneurship - go behind the scenes of the creative process as we
explore ways that we can harness curiosity to unleash creativity. This
dynamic living room-style conversation hosted by journalist,
broadcaster, composer and writer Paolo Pietropaolo will bring together a
mix of talented personalities from a wide range of disciplines to help
us unshroud the creative process in its many forms. As the conversation
unfolds, you may even discover new ways to let your curiosity come out
and play and hack your own creative potential.

The panel:
Beatrice Franke – TRIUMF Research Scientist
Alexandra Greenhill – Founder of myBestHelper
Pat Christie – Creator of SPACE
Jordan Nobles – Juno winning composer

Hot-Spots Tours: Introduction

TODAY at 1pm Matt Pearson will be giving an introductory session towards the
2017 Hot-Spots Tours, aimed to provide an overview of the areas that will
be visited in the tour and to provide time for some Q&A (without the
radiation exposure).

Time:  Tuesday Feb 14 at 1pm
Place: TRIUMF Auditorium

This session will be open also to people who are not attending the tour.

It will cover all the areas involved in the production of beams
used in experiments at TRIUMF - areas which are not accessible to
anyone during the Cyclotron's operation.
This is a great opportunity to have a better understanding of our facility.

This time we will not be providing pizza, only knowledge.
