Register Now for Kids Day @ SLAC!
Registration Ends July 22
By Teresa Troxel
Kids Day @ SLAC 2005 will be held on
Wednesday, August 10. Registration will begin Monday, July 5, and will
close on Friday, July 22. As in the past, SLAC employees and contractors
may sponsor a 9-16 year-old child.
This year there will be 19 hands-on workshops for the
kids to attend. These include electronics, mechanics, welding, rockets,
magnetics, radiation, vacuum and paleontology to name a few.
There are four new workshops added to the choices:
monster muscles, catapults, optics and electric motors. The workshops
are grouped so that each kid attends different workshops in the morning
and the afternoon. A kid would need to attend Kids Day for six years in
order to attend all of the workshops!
There are additional safety considerations this year and
each parent will be required to read about the risks involved in each
workshop as well as to comply with required PPE (long pants and
closed-toe shoes) for each kid.
The cost for the day is $12 and will cover a t-shirt,
lunch and ice cream. This year’s t-shirt logo design winner is Jenine
Fernandez, age 14. Her central figure is an inquisitive Albert
Einstein-very timely for 2005, the ‘Year of Einstein!’
