Welcome our 2016 SULI (DOE Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship) and ODU REU (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) summer students who will be spending the next 10 weeks working on science and engineering projects with JLab staff. Thanks to the students for joining us and thanks to the staff for mentoring them!

Joanna and Steve are back with Week 3 of March Microscope Madness! Last week's objects will be revealed and you'll be given three new images to identify! Can you guess what they are? Check back next week to see if you were right!

Did you miss the start of March Microscope Madness? Not a problem. You can get all caught-up by following this handy link: https://youtu.be/s011prghQdY

What you should know about quantum physics? Or, more importantly, what should your dog know about quantum physics? Can they use quantum tunneling to get into the neighbor's yard? Can they use their wave nature to catch rabbits? And, what's the deal with the box with that half-alive, half-dead cat inside? Grab a handful of treats and join us for "What Every Dog Should Know About Quantum Physics!"

Quantum physics, the science of extremely small things like atoms and subatomic particles, is one of the best tested theories in the history of science, and also one of the most bizarre. Many of its predictions - particles that behave like waves, cats that are alive and dead at the same time, objects that pass through barriers as if they weren't even there - seem more like science fiction than science fact. In this talk, Chad Orzel, Union College, will explain the reality behind some of the stranger aspects of quantum physics, and why it is so important that even dogs should know about it.

Lectures are free and open to students and adults with an interest in science. Seating in the CEBAF Center auditorium is limited and is on a first come, first served basis. Unfortunately, people arriving once capacity has been reached will be turned away. For security purposes, everyone over 16 is asked to carry a photo I.D. Security guards may inspect vehicles, book bags and purses.

Joanna and Steve are back with the final week of March Microscope Madness! Last week's objects will be revealed and you'll be given three new images to identify! Can you guess what they are? While the answers will be given at the end of this video, don't forget to come back next week to learn a trick that you can play on your friends for April Fools'!

We had a great time today working with students through the My Brother's Keeper Initiative! Eleven DOE national labs are hosting students today. Our students participated in two awesome #STEM activities with ten JLab staff members.
Special thanks to David Hamlette, Dave Lawrence, Jessie Butler, Bridget Paul, Mary Boggs, Jacqueline Bacon, Carroll Jones, Ken Surles-Law, Brita Hampton, and Lisa Surles-Law!!

Plan now to explore Jefferson Lab’s world-class research facilities during its 2016 Open House: A New Era of Science!

Tours of research areas, numerous exhibits, demonstrations, and hands-on activities will be featured – providing a day of fun and education for the entire family and people of all ages. Visitors are welcome to take photos and videos.

Admission is free and so is parking. The Open House will end at 3 p.m., but parking will close at 2 p.m. and no admittance will be allowed after that time.

During your visit, you can learn about: superconducting materials, supercomputers, particle accelerators, particle detectors, nuclear physics research and much more. A number of other Hampton Roads research organizations, local and regional universities and museums and technology-focused groups take part in the event and provide demonstrations and exhibits.

Visit the event webpage for updates!
