Family Open House

Join us for an afternoon of science fun.

Every year we have the Fermilab Family Open House, a party for children who bring an adult with them 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.

Typically you can:

  • Watch Mr. Freeze's fabulous cryogenics show
  • Explore physics concepts with hands-on activities
  • Ask a scientist your physics questions.
  • Take a tour!
  • And more!

When: Winter of each year.

Audience: The Open House is most appropriate for children in grades 3 and up.

Registration: The event is free. Registration information will be available in the winter a few weeks before the event. Registration is only needed for the tours.
