The sixth annual IceCube Masterclass, and the third at the University of Alabama, will be held on Thursday April 11, 2019  at the University of Alabama. This event is an opportunity to meet researchers on IceCube, the largest neutrino detector ever built, which is taking data in the harshest place on Earth, and has observed the highest energy neutrinos ever. The masterclass is an opportunity to learn more about our Universe and analyze actual IceCube data. More details can be found here. The event is hosted by Prof. Dawn Williams and Prof. Marcos Santander of the University of Alabama.
