Come and hear John Leinhard, host of NPR’s acclaimed “Engines of Our
Ingenuity,” speak at 1:30 p.m. Then look at the Laboratory’s innovative
research and how it contributes to a more secure national environment.
Visit the Lab’s Instrumentation Division and see how printed circuits
are fabricated and manufactured. And, as an added treat, enjoy the music
and art of Brookhaven employees.
||Investigating Our Living World
Explore the marvels of medicine and the brilliance of biology. See
how Brookhaven works on tomorrow’s cures for today’s common illnesses.
Why do our bodies crave chocolate, nicotine, and cocaine? Discover how
the Lab studies the brain to understand addiction and its effects.
||Family Fun Day
Join in fun-filled demonstrations at the
Laboratory’s Science Museum and meet guest partners from the Long Island
ScienCenter, NY Hall of Science, Nassau Cradle of Aviation and the
Goudreau Math Museum. A planetarium…a Mission to Mars display…and
hair-raising hands-on exhibits will mean a great day for the whole
||Seeing With Invisible Light
Powerful beams of invisible light help scientists
make remarkable discoveries that can impact our everyday life! The
National Synchrotron Light Source is one of the world’s brightest
sources of x-ray and ultraviolet beams. Used by the 2003 Nobel Prize
winner in chemistry as well as by researchers from around the world, the
Light Source has contributed to advances in medicine, materials, space
travel and much more!
||Today’s Forecast Calls for a
Come learn about weather, what creates it, and how
you can be prepared for it. See a tornado simulator, the Doppler Radar,
and computer tracking at the National Weather Service. And, yes, the
weather balloon will be launched at 3:30 p.m
||Please step out of your vehicle…
and step into ours.
Meet the team that helps the Laboratory go and
grow safely. Climb aboard construction equipment and fire engines. Do
you know how to use your fire extinguisher? Here’s your chance to learn.
||From the Big Bang to the Infinitely
What do you get when you smash two beams of gold
particles, moving at 99.9% the speed of light? Scientists are hoping to
create matter that existed in the first millionth of a second after the
Big Bang. Detectors three stories tall look for the tiniest building
blocks of the universe. It’s astounding – and not to be missed!
Featuring the Whiz Bang Science Show, the
Camp Upton Historical Collection, an exhibit on the 2003 Nobel Prize in
Chemistry awarded for research conducted at Brookhaven Lab, and tours of
Brookhaven’s world-class scientific facilities.
