High Speed Data Collection
Come watch Barry Warthen explode eggs inside his traveling “Explodatorium!” A Lab researcher with the DARHT Experiments and Diagnostics Group, Barry will demonstrate how we can use flash photography and flash radiography to learn about dynamic experiments.

Magnets and Magnetic Levitation
Did you know that all materials are slightly magnetic? Stop by and interact with Scott Crooker, with the Lab’s National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, who will demonstrate that all materials attract but only some repel. Not only will you be “drawn” to what he’ll show you, you can also see magnetic levitation in action.
