March 1 Colloquium: General public invited

We welcome the general public to join Fermilab employees and users to the Colloquium at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, March 1. Charlie Atkinson, chief engineer of the James Webb Space Telescope, will explain how the telescope was designed, built, tested and sent to beyond the moon.

To attend, we ask the general public to register here:

Please note that registration closes at noon on Monday, Feb. 27.

Volunteers needed

We also will need badged employees to help host these visitors. Please email to volunteer.

Volunteer duties:

We will ask volunteers to be available before the Colloquium to greet visitors inside the ground floor, north-west entrance to Wilson Hall. There, you will greet a small group of visitors, welcome them to Fermilab and bring them up to Wilson Hall 1-West. After the Colloquium, please accompany your group to the speaker’s reception at 5 p.m. and then back to the ground floor entrance.

If you know family or friends who registered for the Colloquium, you can join them when they arrive. Otherwise, we will need a number of people to accompany these visitors we anticipate will attend.
