Upton, NY - Juy 18, 2017 - On Sunday, June 16, Suffolk County Legislator Sarah Anker attended the first “Summer Sunday” event of the season at Brookhaven National Lab. For several weeks each summer, Brookhaven National Lab welcomes members of the public to its site to visit the facility, speak with researchers, and participate in special activities for adults and children. The theme for the first “Summer Sunday” was Family Fun Day. Attendees enjoyed hands-on activities about engineering, electricity, sounds, and light at the lab’s Science Learning Center.
“I would like to thank Brookhaven National Lab for hosting these free events for the public. The ‘Summer Sunday’ events are a great way to learn about the research and projects at the lab, as well as to get the whole family involved in different aspects of science with hands-on activities,” said Legislator Anker.
Brookhaven National Lab will host “Summer Sundays” throughout the season with a special theme for each event. The event schedule is as follow:
- Sunday, July 23: Exploring the Ultra Small
- Sunday, July 30: Brilliant Light, Dazzling Discoveries
- Sunday, August 6: Atom-Smashing Fun
On “Summer Days” the gates at the lab are open from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM. For more information about upcoming events, please visit https://www.bnl.gov/stakeholder/summerSundays.php.
