LBNL to host open house Oct. 2. Register by Sept. 24.
Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL) invites you to discover science on the hill at their open house on Saturday, October 2, from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Come discover how biofuels are produced, find out about the creation of the Internet, or learn about supernovas. LBNL has the answers to all of that and more at its open house. Families, community members and others are invited to attend.
Talk directly with scientists conducting cutting-edge research, check out a cosmic ray detector, sequence DNA, create and measure your own seismic waves, build a motor at the Family Adventure Zone, or take a tour of the Advanced Light Source – one of the world’s brightest sources of ultraviolet and soft x-ray beams. Performances, displays, demonstrations, lectures, tours and food vendors will also be featured.
This year’s theme is energy. Open house exhibits will focus on:
- Making energy
- Seeing energy
- Safe energy
- Living energy
- Saving energy
By Friday, Sept. 24, please register for either the morning (10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.) or afternoon (12:30 – 3:00 p.m.) session. This will help ensure safe and comfortable access to all activities for everyone.
Visitors and employees must bring a printout of their registration confirmation to enter the event. You will access the Lab via a shuttle bus that departs from UC Berkeley’s West Gate. Employees who drive will enter via Blackberry Gate. See Getting to the Lab page on the LBNL website for more details.
