Our Field Trip to Fermilab

We’re getting ready for our field trip to Fermilab, which happens next Wednesday. Our field trip also includes a walk through the Fermilab Art Gallery; the On that Note visualization of music exhibition is currently on display in the gallery. One of the purposes of this field trip is to explore meaningful connections between the arts and science.

Chicago Kaleidoscopes looks at key aspects of Chicago’s identity via creative writing, and one aspect of this city is the scientific research that happens in the Chicago area. Italian born physicist Enrico Fermi taught at the University of Chicago; in 1942 Fermi created the first controlled nuclear reaction at UC.

Really looking forward to this field trip!
