    This annual event starts with various groups within the lab hosting tables and speaking informally with participants from William Floyd HS, Center Moriches HS, Greenport HS, and Mattituck-Cutchogue HS as they walk around and learn about the different groups at BNL. Pictures or posters of facility or research, examples of projects, tools or equipment, are all displayed. Three speakers briefly outline their career path -Why they chose science and how they got to where they are today. After lunch there is a brief tour of two amazing BNL facilities. These facility visits give participants an unprecedented look at how the science gets done. Finally, a researcher shares the details about their current research project (s), followed by Hand-On Science fun.
