UPDATE – Due to unforeseen circumstances, the IceCube Masterclass at the University of Alabama is cancelled this year. We plan to hold another Masterclass in March 2018.

The fourth annual IceCube Masterclass, and the second at the University of Alabama, will be held on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 in the McMillan Building 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.

A map showing the Ferguson Center Parking Lot and the buildings where Masterclass Activities will be held can be found here.
