Based on the success over the last two years and the terrific feedback we received from visitors, I am excited to announce that we will host an Open House this year on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The Open House showcases our research and how it benefits society, seeks to inspire future generations of scientists, and helps build good relations with our local community, which are all key to the Lab’s overall mission.
This year’s theme is “Adventures in Science With the Berkeley Lab Explorers” and the event location will move to the Bevatron parking lot, which provides more room, a flatter surface, and easier access for visitors.
Open House is not possible without the help of volunteers, so I have asked each Division Director to create a task force comprised of scientists and/or staff to develop exhibits showcasing their research or operational areas. A representative of this group will work with Public Affairs, which is leading the overall program.
Those interested in assisting with their division’s exhibit, or assisting with general event duties, can contact event manager Lyn Hunter.
I look forward to seeing you at this wonderful, exciting event. Go here to watch a video of last year’s event.
