Fermilab Family Open House
Sunday, February 21, 2010
Thank you to everyone who helped make the 2009 Open House such a great success, by helping, getting the word out, or attending! The 2010 Open House will be held on Sunday, February 21 from 1:00 to 5:00 PM.
Every year we have the Fermilab Family Open House.
Register for the Open House (no charge)
This is a party for children who bring an adult with them to learn about the world of physics. (There’s plenty for the grown-ups, too.)
A tentative schedule of events includes:
- Watch Mr. Freeze’s fabulous cryogenics show
- Explore physics concepts with hands-on activities
- Ask a scientist your physics questions.
- Tour the linear accelerator or the Magnet Factory (tour availability very limited).
- And more!
The Open House will be most appropriate for children in grades 3 and up (tours restricted to adults and children age 10 and up). The event is free, but registration is required. Be sure to sign up for tours. You should pick up the tickets for the tours in the atrium on the day of the event.
