Every year we look back at the Neutrino Day and say to each other, “This really was the best Neutrino Day yet.” 2023 was definitely one of those years.
Thank you to all the volunteers who fastened wristbands, taught a young person about neutrinos, took pictures with our visitors, and just made people smile. That’s what makes Neutrino Day better every year.
With just a few days to go before Neutrino Day 2023, we want to be sure to let you know what to expect when you arrive in Lead, and throughout the day. This information may change for Neutrino Day 2024, but will give you an idea of the preparations underway.
Thank you for volunteering to be a part of SURF’s Neutrino Day!
When you arrive in Lead, you may choose the closest parking option for the Handley Recreation Center or you may also park near the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center and ride the shuttle buses to the Handley Recreation Center beginning at 8:30 a.m. Please use the crosswalk and traffic signals at the corner of Glendale Drive for your safety.
Thank you for volunteering to be a part of SURF’s Neutrino Day! Volunteers at the Yates Complex are required to have access to SURF prior to Neutrino Day.
When you arrive in Lead, we recommend parking near the Yates Hoistroom. Your volunteer t-shirt and a Neutrino Day informational pocket guide to assist you in helping our visitors will be available at the Yates Hoistroom when you arrive, or may be picked up at the SURF Administration Building prior to Neutrino Day.
Thank you, again, for volunteering to be a part of SURF’s Neutrino Day event and helping set up. On the day before Neutrino Day, a team of volunteers will spend the afternoon getting ready for our visitors.
Your volunteer t-shirt will be waiting for you at the Neutrino Day locations. There will be additional events happening throughout the afternoon, so we appreciate your willingness to help with a variety of tasks, some of which may require travel to other Neutrino Day event locations.
What better day than Neutrino Day to introduce youngsters to the wonder of neutrinos in the world around us? To get kids (including full-grown kids) excited about neutrinos, we rely on several volunteers at multiple locations to be Neutrino “Detector” volunteers.
Let’s go! Our visitors will be on the go throughout Neutrino Day. Whether hopping on the shuttle bus between the Visitor Center and the Handley Center or catching the trolley tour to the hoistroom, making sure our visitors are going the right direction will make their day smooth and fun.
Volunteers will be needed from 9:00 until 4:00, so if your plans include the keynote event with our special guest, Brian Malow, you might consider a split shift in the morning only, or joining the presentation in progress.
