Supporting STEM Education in Northern New Mexico
Ross McDonald, with the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory’s Pulsed Field Facility at Los Alamos, will talk about the motivation for using high magnetic fields for materials research. With applications ranging from trying to understand high temperature superconductivity to learning fundamental information about metals, he’ll cover the challenges and advantages of working with these incredibly strong fields. He may even bring a demonstration or two to play with.
The Bradbury Science Museum Association supports and inspires learners of all ages in Northern New Mexico and beyond through STEM Education.
