Virtual Visit to Fermilab

March 17 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm CDT

17-0188-17

What are we made of? How did the universe begin? What secrets do the smallest, most elemental particles of matter hold, and how can they help us understand the intricacies of space and time?

 

Fermilab is the United States' premier particle physics laboratory. They do science that matters, as they work on the world's most advanced particle accelerators and dig down to the smallest building blocks of matter. Fermilab scientists also probe the farthest reaches of the universe, seeking out the nature of dark matter and dark energy.

Join Exelon STEM Academy on March 17th at 4:30pm CT/5:30pm ET to meet scientists and/or engineers from Fermilab, who will describe what a DOE lab is and the projects that they and other others participate in at Fermilab. Participants will be able to interact with these ladies during the question and answer segment of the event.
