Our Mission and Vision

Fermilab is America's premier particle physics and accelerator laboratory. We bring the world together to solve the mysteries of matter, energy, space and time. We lead the world in neutrino science, lead the nation in the development of particle colliders and their use, and advance physics through measurements of the cosmos.

The Fermilab Office of Education and Public Engagement shares the science of Fermilab through active engagement and learning to a diverse and inclusive audience, while showcasing the arts and stewardship of the environment. We use Fermilab's advances in science and technology to improve audience understanding and appreciation of the natural world and Fermilab's mission. Using cutting-edge research with regard to how students learn and employing best practices in science communication, we provide opportunities for learners of all ages and backgrounds to engage with Fermilab's science, technology, art, environment and the people who shape those areas.

We serve as the link that connects audiences to Fermilab's mission to understand the mysteries of the universe because we believe knowledge gained at Fermilab is essential to understanding our world.
