Family Open House

Join us for an afternoon of science fun.

Every year we have the Fermilab Family Open House, a party for children of all ages to learn about the world of physics. (There's plenty for the grown-ups, too.)

Watch video on YouTube of a previous event. Watch the calendar for the next one! The Open House is co-supported by Fermilab Friends for Science Education and the Education Office.

  • Watch Mr. Freeze's fabulous cryogenics show!
  • Tour the universe with Brian Nord!
  • Explore physics concepts with hands-on activities!
  • Ask a scientist your physics questions!
  • Take a tour, and more!

When: Feb. 8, 2015, 1:00 to 5:00 PM.
