Open House

2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Fermilab.

Fermilab is hosting an open house on Saturday September 23, 2017.  Everyone (and we mean everyone) is invited.  Sign up for this big event at the Open House web site

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 to be sure.
