How do protons get the enormous energy needed to explore inner space? Visitors use these exhibits to discover how accelerators work.Accelerator Kiosk - Take a multimedia tour of "hard to visit" stops on a proton journey through the accelerator.
Race for Energy - Physicists accelerate particles to high energies. What does it mean to accelerate? Find out by racing cars.
Linear Accelerator (LINAC) - The linear accelerator is timed so particles get many pushes forward, not backward. Can you do it with a ball?
Spiral Accelerator - Why are many accelerators circular? Beat the spiral accelerator.
Electron Accelerator - As in your TV and the Fermilab accelerator, an electric force accelerates particles across this tube. Can you bend them with a magnet?
Energy Beams - At Fermilab, very energetic proton beams reveal what's inside the proton. Which energy levels reveal more information?
