From the Illinois Science Council, Aug. 9, 2021: Fermilab’s first artist-in-residence, Lindsay Olson, describes her first days working at Fermilab where her work took her into the tunnels and research areas of the lab to make art out of science.

From The Rapid City Journal, August 12, 2021: The SURF Davis-Bahcall Scholars Program exposes university freshmen and sophomores in STEM fields to a variety of disciplines helping them decide their college major. This year students took a tour of SURF in Lead, SD and they had the opportunity to speak with scientists and engineers from Fermilab.

From Sanford Lab, July 2021: Explore all the Neutrino Day events July 9-10 to talk with scientists, participate in interactive activities, experience weird science demonstrations, take virtual tours of the underground, and visit the art gallery and library—all in real time! Use the free and simple platform, Gather.town, to virtually go to Neutrino Day town where you can enjoy the events and interact with others as you would in real life.

Wilson Hall 2nd Fl Art Gallery, Friday, Jan. 24, at 2:00 p.m. Please join Fermilab scientists and a delegate from JB Nelson Elementary to announce the winner of the JB Nelson Reverse Science Fair. Fermilab scientists presented their “science projects” and the students were the judges. Come and see who will take home the trophy!

Please submit nominations for the 2019-2021 Scientific Advisory Council members. The Scientific Advisory Council has 15 members who serve a 2 year term, with half the group rotating out each year. The SAC needs diverse representation, incorporating scientists from all scientific areas and from people at all stages of their careers, so please keep this in mind when making your nominations. The charge of the SAC is to engage in open discussion on topics of interest for the laboratory’s research program, and on…
