Register now to join us for our annual Science Activities Night for teachers in Newport News, Va. We'll feature new and innovative methods and activities for teaching the physical sciences for teachers of fourth- through eighth-grade classes.
Teachers participated in hands-on science activities and picked up activities' starter kits and resource materials at Jefferson Lab's 2014 Teachers' Night. The event focused on physical science activities that teachers of fourth- through eighth-grade classes can use in the classroom.

It's March Microscope Madness! Every Monday in March, Joanna and Steve will show you three images taken with a microscope and you guess what the objects are!

Physicists at the Large Hadron Collider discovered two new proton-like particles. Each contains three quarks, one from each quark family, and each is about six times as heavy as a proton. The detections will lead to tighter constraints on future particle physics theories.
Researchers report the detection of two new subatomic particles made of three quarks from each of the possible quark families.

This lecture, given as part of the Virginia Science Festival, explains what you are made of, how experiments are run at Jefferson Lab, and why you should care.

Now this us actually one of the videos I like out of your other ones such as your "Frostbite Theater" episodes

Like dancers swirling on the dance floor with bystanders looking on, protons and neutrons that have briefly paired up in the nucleus have higher-average momentum, leaving less for non-paired nucleons. Using data from nuclear physics experiments carried out with  +Jefferson Lab's CLAS detector (illustration), researchers have now shown for the first time that this phenomenon exists in nuclei heavier than carbon, including aluminum, iron and lead.

The phenomenon also surprisingly allows a greater fraction of the protons than neutrons to have high momentum in these relatively neutron-rich nuclei, which is contrary to long-accepted theories of the nucleus and has implications for ultra-cold atomic gas systems and neutron stars.

We held the Virginia Regional High School Science Bowl this weekend at Jefferson Lab. Congratulations to the champion team: Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology! The team will advance to the National Science Bowl competition in late April  in Washington, D.C.

I have never seen a dog pose like this for any picture. It's like he/she knows exactly what is going on :D

So what can a nuclear physicist do with double the energy to work with? Here're a few things...

Exploring the nature of matter
Introduction
Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility is a world-leading nuclear physics research facility operated and managed for the Department of Energy by Jefferson Science Associates, LLC. Scientists from around the world use Jefferson Lab’s unique electron beam accelerator to explore the nucleus of the atom and its Free-Electron Laser to conduct related research.
