Experience BNL’s Summer Sundays
This Sunday, 8/7: Calling all Storm Hunters!
August 5, 2011
Each year, on Summer Sundays, the Lab is open for the public, employees, and their families to enjoy exciting science shows, tours of world-class science facilities, and hands-on educational activities. No reservations are needed, but visitors age 16 and over must bring a photo ID. Visitors may arrive any time between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. A different tour and new science show will be featured each week. 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 cafeteria and gift shop, also located in Berkner Hall, will be open until 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. respectively.
8/7: Calling All Storm Hunters!
This Sunday, visitors to the Lab can learn how meteorologists at the National Weather Service forecast the weather and track storms across the New York metropolitan area. Also, at 3:30 p.m., weather permitting, a weather balloon will be launched. And don’t miss the “Weather” show!
