School-aged children of Fermilab employees and users can see physics up close on Friday, June 21, when they visit Fermilab for Daughters and Sons to Work (DASTOW) day.

Enjoy traditional favorite activities, including Mr. Freeze’s cryogenics show, the FUNdamentals of Physics show, a demonstration of skills and safety by the Fermilab Fire Department, and lunch in the Wilson Hall atrium.

New to this year’s festivities is the Fermilab’s Children Art Show, sponsored by NALWO, in the Wilson Hall atrium. For more information about how to sign up to showcase your child’s or children’s artwork, visit the art show Web page.

Exposing children to the workplace is an excellent way to show them the value of education, help them understand what their parents or relatives do at work, and get them thinking about future career options.

This year, DASTOW is scheduled on a Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m., allowing time in the afternoon for children to observe their parents while at work. If you choose instead to take vacation time in the afternoon to extend your weekend, please obtain your supervisor’s approval in advance.
