Argonne to showcase science and technology at community open house
Date:8/6/2009

The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE) Argonne National Laboratory will open its gates to the community on Saturday, August 29, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for a day of discovery and fun for the whole family. The event is free and open to the public.

"The open house will be great fun for everyone," said Eric Isaacs, director of Argonne National Laboratory. "We love welcoming the community and having an opportunity to show off some of the great work we are doing to benefit our nation while inspiring public interest in science, engineering and technology."

This rare opportunity will allow visitors to see how Argonne, the nation's first national laboratory, is helping to solve some of the world's toughest challenges in energy, environment and national security and learn more about science and technology.

Argonne conducts basic scientific research to better understand the world we live in, develops and evaluates advanced energy sources, promotes environmental stewardship and helps protect our nation and its economic competiveness. Argonne also operates world-class user facilities to help advance America's scientific leadership, including one of the world's fastest and most energy efficient supercomputers.

The laboratory's last open house, held in 2006, attracted approximately 20,000 people. Information about this year's open house is available online or on the Argonne National Laboratory Facebook page.

The educational event will feature interactive exhibits, hands-on demonstrations, engaging presentations and tours of Argonne's unique facilities.

Let your imagination soar as you learn about the wonders of science, explore technology innovation and experience Argonne's research firsthand with experiences like:

  • Strap on special 3-D glasses to explore the outer edges of the universe
  • Race the robot in a molecular biology speed challenge
  • Test your sense of smell against an electronic
