A physicist at the University of Waterloo is among a team of scientists who have described how glasses form at the molecular level and provided a possible solution to a problem that has stumped scientists for decades.
Their simple theory is expected to open up the study of glasses to non-experts and undergraduates as well as inspire breakthroughs in novel nanomaterials.
With close to 60,000 guests expected, more food trucks than ever before and an expanded roster of free children’s activities, this year is set to be the University of Waterloo’s largest Canada Day celebration yet.
Coming off a spectacular 30th anniversary last year, Waterloo region’s premiere Canada Day celebration is proud to present shining examples of Canadian musical talent. Kim Mitchell, Canadian rock icon and hit machine, and The Strumbellas, a Juno-Award-winning, six-piece, folk pop-grass band, will both perform on the OpenText Stage.
The Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) selected seven researchers from the University of Waterloo to receive a funding boost to further their transformational and potentially groundbreaking research.
The Discovery Accelerator Supplement (DAS) recipients named by NSERC today are among more than 120 Waterloo researchers who have received more than $21 million to further their research through programs such as Discovery grants and grants for equipment.
