Foundry Scientist, Deirdre Olynick, Hosting Virtual Lab Tour

Learn why small is big in this tour of some of the coolest facilities at Berkeley Lab. Watch the event and ask our scientists questions!

LBL is hosting a "virtual field trip" as part of a new series of Google+ Connected Classrooms hangouts at the National Labs. High school students connecting online will be able to tour the clean room at the Molecular Foundry, where scientists create nanoscale structures. They will also learn how our scientists use the Advanced Light Source to image microscopic life in 3-D, as well as what’s possible with one of the world’s most powerful electron microscopes at the National Center for Electron Microscopy, which can see individual atoms. 

Three LBL researchers will host this journey to the smallest scales -- where big science is happening. 

Deirdre Olynick -- staff scientist at the Molecular Foundry
Dula Parkinson -- beamline scientist at the Advanced Light Source
Jim Ciston -- senior staff scientist at the National Center for Electron Microscopy
