Visitors to the Lederman Science Education Center at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will have an opportunity to explore these and other questions at an Open House on Sunday, February 11.
The Department of Energy’s Fermilab continues its series of tours on Saturday, January 13, when the public is invited to view the massive and intricate DZero detector.
Officials at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory today (September 11) announced the third in a planned series of Saturday tours for the public, led by Fermilab scientists.
Program enables partners to provide online classes for teachers on integrating Internet technology in the classroom.

Autumn means harvest time, and the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermilab again invites its neighbors to help harvest prairie flower seeds in conjunction with National Public Lands Day.
Physicists fall in love, agonize over commitment, and think about quantum mechanics-all at the same time; and as a bonus, with the identical potential for emotional dysfunction afflicting most non-physicists.
An international collaboration of scientists at the Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory will announce on July 21, 2000, the first direct evidence for the subatomic particle called the tau neutrino, the third kind of neutrino known to particle physicists.
Neutrinos can easily make their way through the earth and rock between Batavia and a half-mile-deep mineshaft in Soudan, Minnesota, but physicists in the NuMI (Neutrinos at the Main Injector) experiment need the help of a $30.5-million, 20-month excavation effort to create some 4,000 feet of tunnels and other underground experimental areas at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.
Robert R. Wilson, physicist, sculptor, environmentalist and pioneering particle accelerator builder, came home today to the laboratory he created on the Illinois prairie over 30 years ago.
