From fission to supercomputing, come interact

Saturday, April 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. @theBradbury
Fun activities for the whole family!

Splitting atoms: How does an atomic bomb work? Where does its energy come from?

Join us on Saturday, April 9 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. when Mandie Gehring, with the Lab’s Neutron Science & Technology Group, will shed light on how fission works. Demos will help you better understand the physics of chain reactions using simple and accessible materials.

Software & supercomputing

At the same time, Teri Roberts, a software quality engineering and development specialist. She can help you better understand how a computer “knows” what it’s doing.

Scientist in the SpotlightJoin us every second Saturday of the month for Scientist in the Spotlight, a program featuring scientists that have been certified for public outreach through the museum’s Scientist Ambassador Academy. These scientists will talk with museum visitors for a couple of hours about their favorite science, technology, engineering, or math (STEM) subject. Conversations are intended for all ages and include interactive hands-on activities that make learning easy and fun. Learn more about the Scientist Ambassador academy.
