March 23, 2021 - October 31, 2021

Mars Rover, Curiosity, February 2021

“I believe the scientific farmer is going to be the farmer of the future. […] If farming is to be made a success in this country, it has to be done on a scientific basis.”

— J.B. Reynolds (1867-1948)

With that pronouncement in 1895, the Department of Physics was born at the newly formed Ontario Agricultural College (est. 1874). Since then, the Department of Physics at the University of Guelph has grown to become one of the most respected in Canada. With a rich history of research and a strong commitment to innovation in teaching, Guelph Physics has come a long way since its agrarian roots.
