Fermilab to participate in Night of Ideas at Field Museum

The Field Museum and the Consulate General of France in Chicago are partnering to present Chicago’s first ever “Night of Ideas: Alive!” on Thursday, Jan. 30, from 6 p.m. to midnight. The Field describes the event as “a global celebration of art, science, scholarship, and community.”

Fermilab will contribute to three activities at the event: two participants in the 2019 Physics Slam will reprise their presentations at the Field, three scientists will engage with the public in provocative conversations and defend bold scientific positions in the “Change My Mind Challenge,” and Fermilab staff will share scientific concepts related to Fermilab research through engaging hands-on activities throughout the evening.

Night of Ideas is free and open to the public. More information is available on the Field Museum website at: https://www.fieldmuseum.org/our-events/night-ideas-alive
