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.)

Events include:

  • Watch Mr. Freeze’s fabulous cryogenics show
  • Explore physics concepts with hands-on activities
  • Ask a scientist your physics questions.
  • Take a tour!
  • And more!

The Open House is most appropriate for children in grades 3 and up. The event is free.

Register only if you wish to go on a tour (minimum age 10). Otherwise, you do not have to register.

The Open House is funded by Fermilab Friends for Science Education.

Last year we attended this fun event as a family and the kids did not want to leave. It’s fairly simple without a lot of glitz and glamor, but if you have a science buff in your house, they will love all the hands on discoveries to be made. Last year we did not register for the tour, but if we make it this year I hope to get that in as well.
Some of you might be familiar with them for their Dr. Freeze presentations, or their educational resource center that is open almost daily, or their newsworthy scientific research. Whether you are familiar with them or not, this free event to get to know them a bit better has something for everyone to enjoy. It was well attended last year, so prepare for a crowd, but it was worth the trouble for our family.
