Abstract: Have you read about the Higgs boson in the news? Want to find out what it is, if it’s been discovered at the Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland, and what it means for you? Come to Fermilab in Batavia on Sunday, July 29, from 1-3 p.m. to learn about the Higgs and have your questions answered.

Fermilab scientist Don Lincoln will present an overview of the Higgs particle and the decades-long, worldwide search that involved scientists at particle accelerators in Illinois and Europe. Following the presentation, Fermilab scientists involved in the Higgs boson search will be available to answer your questions about the Higgs particle, the Large Hadron Collider and particle physics.

Visitors will also be able to access the 15th floor of Wilson Hall, including its science exhibits and view of the laboratory site and surrounding area.

Free & Open to the Public. No advance reservation is required.
