2012 Summer Sundays Schedule

Family Exploration Day will be held on July 15.

The “Phenomenal Physics of Mr. Fish” will take place in the Berkner Hall auditorium at noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m..

Tour our National Synchrotron Light Sources I & II on July 22. NSLS-II, which will be 10,000 times brighter than our current Light Source, will be on display! Visit exciting exhibits, master the synchrotron quiz, and win prizes. Don’t miss the “Science Laser Light Spectacular” show in the Berkner Hall auditorium.

On July 29, visit the Center for Functional Nanomaterials where Brookhaven scientists probe structures as tiny as a billionth of a meter. Be sure to stop at the Nano Toy Zone and stay for the “Fantastic Forces” show in Berkner Hall.

Visit a world-class particle accelerator where physicists recreate the conditions of the universe as it is thought to have existed microseconds after the Big Bang! On August 5, tour our Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, or RHIC. See particle detectors as big as a house, try to stump a physicist, and watch the “Magic of Science” show in the Berkner Hall auditorium.

Free fun, no reservations required! Science shows each Sunday at noon, 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.. Visitors 16 and older must bring a photo ID. To learn more, visit
