School-age children of Fermilab employees, users and contractors can see physics up close on Friday, June 20, when they visit Fermilab for Daughters and Sons to Work (DASTOW) day.
Enjoy traditional favorite activities, including Mr. Freeze’s cryogenics show, exploring Fermilab Fire Department equipment and lunch in the Wilson Hall atrium.
New to this year’s festivities is Physics Fun on 15, hands-on science activities for children offered by Fermilab’s Education Office. Please note that you will need to register online for this activity. The deadline is June 18.
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 1 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.
For a complete schedule of the day’s events, visit the DASTOW website.
