A reminder to the lab community: Our first Virtual Open House is right around the corner, and you and your families are invited to participate. Check out the Open House offerings, and be sure to register in advance. The event will run for five days, from Feb. 10-14, with “on-demand” content available 24/7, as well as live-streamed events. Activities will include pre-recorded demos and activities for all ages, trivia games, tours of the lab facilities, a community art show and more — all free for everyone to enjoy.
