Do you ever wonder what kind of object killed the dinosaurs? Or how what things from space might someday hit the Earth? Together, we will explore the often overlooked members of our solar system: the comets, asteroids, and other objects that might collide with our planet. This event will consist of a short lecture, an interactive trivia quiz, and plenty of time to ask questions!

School age children of U of T students, staff, faculty and postdoctoral fellows are welcome to attend. Register at with your name and status at U of T, names of family members and ages of children, and dietary restrictions if any.

If you have any access needs to ensure your full participation in this event (examples might include sign language interpretation, mobility issues, or any other accommodations), please contact the Family Care Office and we will work with you to make appropriate arrangements
