Great Chance to Visit Argonne National Lab

Argonne National Laboratory Open House. In southwest suburban Chicago, this is a fascinating place. Or it was, all those years ago when I went on a tour with a group of high school science geeks.
One of the Department of Energy's oldest and largest national labs opens its doors to the public for a rare behind-the-scenes look. There'll be more than 100 demos and activities, including taking a test drive in the Advanced Powertrain Research Facility's driving simulator, racing a robot in a molecular biology speed challenge, watching nanoparticles change colors, "fun with cryogenics," and much more.
Too bad I can't get away.
