More Than 1,300 Students in Newport News Will Participate in the BEAMS (Becoming Enthusiastic About Math and Science) program at Jefferson Lab
A group of fifth graders eyed Jefferson Lab Science Education Administrator Steve Gagnon. He stood unassuming and patient at the front of the lab auditorium, ready to begin the Cryogenics Show. Behind him was a complex mix full of common house hold items (including a tea kettle) and science equipment (such as glass tubes) scattered and seemingly disorganized across a long table.
Gagnon introduced himself and nonchalantly grabbed a large silver cannister with what appeared to be smoke billowing out of it. Admittedly, the students were mostly disinterested, slouched in their seats. Disinterested that is, until Gagnon informed the students the smoke was not smoke at all, but fog caused by the el...
Save the *new* date! Jefferson Lab’s next open house event is scheduled for Sept. 12
NEWPORT NEWS, VA – The Department of Energy’s Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility has revised the date for its next open house event. Now, Virginia’s national laboratory plans to open its doors to the public for its next biennial open house event on Saturday, Sept. 12. The free event will offer an opportunity for people of all ages to explore this world-class research facility.
Upon further consideration of September local event and holiday schedules, Jefferson Lab has decided to revise the date to Sept. 12. In the event of a long-lasting forecast weather event, an inclement weather date is set for Sept. 26.
Highlights of the event will include tours of the lab’s unique research facilities, hands-on activi...
