2017-18 School Year

This page will contain information on Saturday Morning Physics at Fermilab for the three session that encompass the 2017-18 school year.

Registration opens on August 7, 2017.


The tentative dates of the three sessions in the 2017-18 school year are:

  • Session I – September 30 through December 2, 2017 (November 25 off for Thanksgiving)
    • We are planning to have a second week off in this session to give a lecture that is entirely in Spanish.
  • Session II – January 6 through March 3, 2018
  • Session III – March 10 through May 12, 2018 (March 31 off for Easter)

Open House

Note that there is a lab-wide open house on Saturday September 23, 2017.  Everyone (and we mean everyone) is invited. A dedicated web page is coming soon; you can consult the full schedule of events for Fermilab’s 50th birthday year, which includes this Open House.

Contact for your High School

We normally contact schools in early September with information about the coming SMP sessions.  Check with your science teacher(s) to see if your school is on the list.  We think we have all schools within 50 miles of Fermilab covered, but you may contact us if you think your school is not covered.
