    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    LAB - Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    Led by top Argonne experts, this tour will include several unique research areas and user facilities throughout this expansive campus. You'll explore the Advanced Photon Source (APS), the Advanced Powertrain Research Facility, and Argonne's visualization laboratory, where groundbreaking simulations—from blood flow to the explosion of a star—are displayed on a 24 million pixel sixteen-foot-long screen.

    Hosted by: Matt Howard, Director of Communications, Education, and Public Affairs
