Physics and Astronomy volunteers at 2015 Science Olympics

The 32nd Science Olympics were held at Western on May 21, 2015.  Almost 1000 high school students and teachers from over 30 Ontario schools from as far away as Timmins participated.

Organizers were Prof. Emeritus Patrick Whippey, his daughter Caroline, as well as their hard working committee.

Some of the events were held in the Physics and Astronomy building, where an enthusiastic group of student volunteers (shown above in photo) managed the Astronomy Triathlon event.
