Kids Day at SLAC

By Matt Howard

On Thursday, August 19, SLAC will host its annual Kids Day. This is a time to bring your kids, ages 9 to 16, to SLAC for them to learn more about the wonderful place you work.

This year we will be able to accommodate 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. Graham George (aka Dr. BOOM) (SSRL) will give a science talk to the kids along with parents and sponsors.

Volunteers are needed to help with the Kids Day festivities. If you are interested, please contact Lisa Mongetta (Ext. 2733, mongetta@slac.stanford.edu).
