Watch Mr. Freeze's cryogenics show, or explore physics concepts with hands-on activities. Join in "Ask a Scientist" for your physics questions, science lectures for the whole family, take a tour of Fermilab and more.

Students from Naperville Central, Naperville North, Payson and Chicago's Northside College Prep high schools will present their own science activities for parents and kids.

This event is for children who bring an adult with them to learn about the world of physics. There's plenty for the grown-ups, too.

The open house is most appropriate for children in third grade and older. There is no admission charge.

Register at fnal.gov only if you wish to go on a tour (minimum age 10). Otherwise, you do not have to register.

The open house is funded by Fermilab Friends for Science Education.

Its mission is to: enhance the quality of pre-college science education in public and private schools; encourage young people to pursue careers in science and engineering; and promote a broader public awareness and understanding of science.
