Have you been looking for a way to spruce up your office with some fetching Fermilab art? We may have what you’re looking for.
The DOE Office of Technology Transitions has just published a new series of posters that capture success stories from all 17 Department of Energy national laboratories. The Fermilab poster features the lab’s role in advancing the superconducting wire industry. The original art, nostalgic in flavor, features the Tevatron and Wilson Hall. As the series website notes, “The Advancing America through Technology Transfer series selects one story from each lab and transforms it into a work of art that captures the spirit of the lab and its surrounding area. With each project, OTT strives to showcase the impacts these lab-derived technologies have on our everyday lives, our economic competitiveness and national security.”
Head now to the website for the Advancing America through Technology Transfer series to view the poster, and maybe even print it. All 17 posters are available, so if you’re a fan of other DOE labs, you can print their posters, too. A more portable card format is also online. And don’t forget to look at the back of the posters to see the enormous impact we have on the daily lives of all Americans.
Cherri J Schmidt is the head of the Fermilab Office of Partnerships and Technology Transfer and acting head of the Illinois Accelerator Research Center.
