Run Like a Proton Activity (Beauty and Charm Field Trip)

Visiting teachers said of their field trip experiences

"Fermi's docents continue to impress me with their knowledge, their patience, and their outstanding ability to work so well with a difficult age group! I've taken groups to other prairie trips in the area, but this one is always far superior!"

The docents "were great once again. The kids walked out with their minds on fire and a few are interested in studying accelerator physics now. Amazing. Please pass on to your docents and your scientist how much we appreciated the quality of their presentations and efforts."
