Ever wondered what goes on within the iconic dome building at Berkeley Lab? Our particle accelerator supports research in a wide variety of fields. In this episode, we'll build a crystal together and learn how x-ray crystallography is used to examine structures. First in a series about our Advanced Light Source.
Come celebrate Nano Day with us! This week, we'll take a close look at the nano-sized materials in both nature and technology. Researchers from the Molecular Foundry will take us on a little journey through this vast field of science. This session will be bilingual! Ask questions to our researchers in either English or Spanish.
Grab your magnifying glass and your notepads! We'll be investigating the mysterious world of particle physics. Berkeley Lab physicists will share with us the patterns and clues they use to detect particles as well as the tools they use to find them!
National Periodic Table Day (February 7) is just around the corner and we will be talking about the process of discovering, or creating, new elements. So far, Berkeley Lab has helped discover 16 elements on the periodic table! Are we close to finding another?
Discover how the art of DJing in Hip Hop culture and STEM intertwine in collaboration with MacArthur Fellow physicist, Dr. Carl Haber, Bay Area artist Jahi, and Berkeley Lab's own DJ Miles Green. Learn about the physics behind vinyl records and turntables, and the significance of them in the history and culture of Hip Hop. See live demonstrations on the turntables, an exploration on sound and sound restoration, along with various STEM connections to the turntable.
