Scientist in the Spotlight: Energy/Internet of things

Join us on Saturday, January 13 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Events are designed for those of all ages.

Every day we access vast amounts of energy to do our bidding from lighting our homes to powering our cars. Join Steve Schreiber, with our Nuclear Process Infrastructure organization, as he guides you through the wide-ranging resources we tap, their relative energy density, and how we might be able to squeeze more work from them. Through hands-on (and even nose-on) activities expand your appreciation of how we creatively obtain the energy we want and need.

Software surrounds us

Join Sandy Frost, with the Lab's Site Infrastructure & Programs Software group, as she talks about how software is integral to our lives, including coding (plugged and unplugged), its history, the Internet of things, and accessibility. She even has a home automation demonstration using Amazon Echo.

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 be in the Museum to talk with 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.
