AUPAC Success!

This past weekend the AUPAC 2018 Organizing Committee successfully ran an excellent Atlantic Undergraduate Physics & Astronomy Conference (, which showed off all kinds of research from around the region. Despite the weather the conference ran very smoothly and all of the Committee have invested substantial time and effort in bringing all the pieces together. I am sure that Science Atlantic are very grateful to the Committee, but so is the Department. It is always good news when we have visitors who enjoy and learn from a visit to UNB, which could not have happened on this occasion without the many hours that everyone put into making AUPAC 2018 a success.


Congratulations to Ryan Harvey!
