What do electronics, ice cream, metrology, Graham George,
hot dogs, cryogenics and 156 excited children have in common?
They are all part of Kids Day @ SLAC 2003. Mark your
calendar for Tuesday, July 15, as this promises to be another fun filled
educational and career choice exposure event for our children as well as
our many volunteers.

Registration for this event is from June 1 to June 27, or
until the workshops fill—and they fill fast!
In response to last year’s requests, lunch will be
included in the day’s festivities, and each child will receive a
commemorative T-shirt with a very cool design. There will be a charge of
$10 per child to cover these items.
Workshops will include: Metrology, Cryogenics,
Electronics, Vacuum, Mechanics, Biology, Radiation, Magnetics, Waves and
Video Conferencing. Additional features of the day include a welcome from
our Director Jonathan Dorfan, a tour of the Fire Station at lunch, an ice
cream social and a Science Talk (and booms) with Graham George.
Volunteer escorts are needed and appreciated! Please watch
for additional information in your SLAC mail box and on the Web site.
