From the Kane County Chronicle, April 11, 2019: High school students who are potentially interested in a career in the STEM fields are invited to learn more about opportunities at the Fermilab STEM Career Expo from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. April 17 at in the atrium of Fermilab’s Wilson Hall. Students will meet with STEM professionals and ask questions about STEM careers. In addition to Fermilab scientists and engineers, the STEM Career Expo will feature more than 100 professionals from more than 30 local companies and research organizations who will explain what they do.

From Daily Herald, April 8, 2019: On Wednesday, April 17, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m., Fermilab will offer high school students a valuable opportunity to ask those questions in person. The annual STEM Career Expo, held in the atrium of Wilson Hall, will put those students face to face with people actually doing the jobs they will be applying for in the coming years.

If you know kids between the ages of 7 and 12, you know how hard it can be to get them excited about science from a textbook. Children love to be wowed and to experience physical phenomena with eyes wide and jaws dropped. That’s the thinking behind Fermilab’s annual Wonders of Science show, which will take place on Sunday, March 10, at 1 p.m. The show, organized and performed by award-winning high school teachers, is celebrating its 32nd year at Fermilab. Tickets are $5.00 per person.

From The Bogota Post, Feb. 14, 2019: Building change stems from building new role models to get women out of unpaid labor roles and into the country’s laboratories and management boards. Role models include on of the scientists on the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment.

From The Beacon-News, Feb. 10, 2019: Thousands of children and their parents put science on their radar Sunday as Fermilab held its annual open house event. For four hours, families were able to tour and explore the space Fermilab calls, “America’s premier particle physics and accelerator laboratory” and, according to staff, “show what we do and what’s possible here.”

From Chicago Tribune, Jan. 30, 2019: Think of it as a Physics Party. A big one. The popular Fermilab Family Open House is back with a bang from 1 to 5 p.m. Feb. 10 at Fermilab. The lab wants visitors to gain a better understanding of all the exciting things happening at Fermilab and a general appreciation for STEM fields and research.

Fermilab’s Family Open House is a chance for the whole family to spend an afternoon learning about science in a hands-on way and have fun doing it. This year’s event, running from 1-5 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 10, will feature the Great Neutrino Hunt, live physics demonstrations, a memorial to Leon Lederman, and several activities for kids and their parents to enjoy.

REFUGES, started by physicist Tino Nyawelo, aims to give refugees and other underrepresented groups the tools to succeed in STEM. Although the program is focused on increasing diversity in STEM disciplines, the overall goal is to address the academic and cultural difficulties that refugee youth face in Utah.
