The fourth annual IceCube Masterclass, and the second at the University of Alabama, will be held on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 in Farrah Hall 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.
