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.
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!
Visit the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, a world-class particle accelerator where physicists recreate the conditions in the universe as they believe it existed microseconds after the Big Bang.
