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 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.

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.
