Event Description

Fun for all ages!

Software & supercomputing
Teri Roberts was a software quality engineering and development specialist. She can help you better understand how a computer “knows” what it’s doing. From binary language to robots, take the journey and have some fun!

Measuring with metric
Even though the United States signed the Treaty of the Meter in 1875, we continue to use two sets of measurement units side by side, leading to wasted time and medical errors—among other issues. Stop by and learn from Linda Anderman, with the Lab's Bradbury Science Museum, about the advantages of the metric system. There are scales both old and new to play with and an opportunity to consider if our current path really "measures up."

While here, pick up your free, metric-only ruler.
