Summer Sundays 2016 has ended.

For several weeks each summer, Brookhaven Lab welcomes members of the public to its site. We plan days that include visits to our facilities, opportunities to speak with our researchers, special activities for adults and children, and much more—and it’s all free! Check back here for 2017 dates.

Family Fun Day

A fabulous day of hands-on family fun with the Science Learning Center.

Exploring the Ultra Small

Tour the Center for Functional Nanomaterials, where Brookhaven scientists study structures as tiny as a billionth of a meter.

Brilliant Light, Dazzling Discoveries

Visit the National Synchrotron Light Source II, where scientists use intense beams of light to see the inner structure of batteries, proteins, space dust, and more.

Atom-Smashing Fun*

Explore the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider, where particles are smashed together at near-light-speed to reveal the secrets of our universe.

* Facility tour appropriate for ages 10 and over.
