    • 2:30 p.m. "Mr. Freeze:" Jerry Zimmerman of Fermilab will perform his popular cryogenics show involving lots of balloons and liquid nitrogen, which boils at minus-321 degrees Fahrenheit.
    • 3:00 p.m. "Art Meets Science: Picasso at the Nanoscale:" Volker Rose, Argonne Lab physicist, will show how extremely precise microscopy allowed scientists to prove that Picasso used common house paint rather than traditional artists' paint in some of his artwork.
    • 4:00 p.m. "The Mysteries of Mass and Matter: An exploration into the wonders of the subatomic world from the Higgs boson to the search for dark matter:" Marcela Carena, senior scientist at Fermilab and professor in physics, is well known for her research on the Higgs particle and appeared in the documentary "The Atom Smashers."
  • Sunday, February 16
    • 3:00 p.m. "Future Energy: Taking on Humankind's Greatest Challenge": Seth Darling, Argonne Lab scientist and fellow of the Institute for Molecular Engineering, will explain why energy is at the heart of our future as a society and why we need to rethink where we choose to get our energy.
