Argonne to Host Energy Showcase on September 15
Our heartfelt "Thank you" to all our visitors. We appreciate the opportunity
to share our exciting research with you. We hope you enjoyed your visit to Argonne as
much as we did!
Check out the Energy Showcase photos from Argonne’s Nuclear Energy Exhibit and the Energy Showcase displays on nuclear engineering research that were located in Bldg. 208 and in one of the tents.

ARGONNE, Ill. (Aug. 31, 2012) — Argonne will open its gates to the community on Saturday, September 15, from 9am to 4:00pm for a day of discovery and fun for the whole family. The event is free and open to the public and it will be held rain or shine.
The Nuclear Engineering Division will actively participate in this event with activities inside and outside Building 208, the home of the Nuclear Engineering Division. Scheduled activities include:
- Guided tours of Argonne's Nuclear Energy Exhibit;
- Displays demonstrating equipment from the MAX experiment, robotics work, and computer aided-design.
- In addition we will have displays in room A-138 of Bldg. 208 and in a tent across from Bldg. 208 discussing
- There will
also be a slide show in A-138 describing the elements that make up a nuclear reactor and
nuclear power plant.
More information about these and other Nuclear Engineering activities can be found by navigating our website. If you have further questions, please contact us.
Directions to the laboratory are available here.
Below is a partial list of posters and fact sheets we will present at the Argonne Energy Showcase. You will also find some posters and fact sheets presented by NE at the Argonne Open House events in 2006 and 2009.
