August 6, 2010
This Summer Sunday, August 8, is the last of this year. Visitors are invited to the Lab site to learn about the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a world-class particle accelerator where physicists recreate conditions of the early universe to study the fundamental forces of matter. Stump a physicist and be amazed by the wonders of “Phenomenal Physics.” This tour is appropriate for adults and children 10 and older.
In addition, exciting science shows and entertaining activities for children and adults are all part of the free fun and learning opportunities offered to the public by BNL during Summer Sundays, which have been ongoing since July 11. No reservations are needed to take part in Summer Sundays at the Lab, but visitors 16 and older must bring a photo ID. Visitors may arrive any time between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. Arrive early to avoid crowds and to take advantage of the full program.
The last facility visit takes place at 3 p.m. each week, and science shows will be held at noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. each Sunday in Berkner Hall. A new hands-on exhibit, “Creating Our Future, Sustainability by Design,” is displayed in the Berkner Hall lobby. The cafeteria and gift shop, both in Berkner Hall, will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
