234 kids, so register early to secure a spot. Registration begins July
22 and ends August 12 or when all the workshops are filled. The all-day
event begins at 8:30 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. The cost is $10 per
child, which includes a barbecue lunch as well as a Kids Day t-shirt.
There are six new workshops for the kids
to attend this year: anthropology, safety, facilitation, GLAST, welding
and biochemistry. These are in addition to those offered in previous
years such as cryogenics, electronics, magnetics and metrology. Dr.
