School-age children of Fermilab employees, users and contractors can see physics up close on Friday, June 10, when they visit Fermilab for Daughters and Sons to Work (DASTOW) day.
Enjoy activities such as a visit to the Fermilab Fire Department, Mr. Freeze Show, Physics Fun on 15, Ask a Scientist on the 15th floor, Remote Operations Center West open house and lunch in the Wilson Hall atrium. Lederman Science Center will be open and a bus will be run between Wilson Hall and the Center from 11:15 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. (or if the weather is nice, feel free to walk!).
For a complete schedule of the day’s events, visit the DASTOW website.
Please note that registration is required for Physics Fun on 15. Geared toward kids 10 and under, Physics Fun on 15 will feature hands-on science activities offered by Fermilab’s Education Office on the 15th floor of Wilson Hall.
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.
DASTOW is scheduled on a Friday from 8:30 a.m. until 1:30 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.
