Scientist in the Spotlight: Climate modeling/Energy and power

  • 10 Feb 2018
  • 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Bradbury Science Museum 1350 Central Ave, Los Alamos, NM 87544, USA

These activities are designed for those of all ages. 

Come and interact with our Scientist Ambassadors on cool topics!

Climate modeling

The Laboratory has made major contributions to computer modeling of climate for well over two decades, with particular expertise in the cold regions where sea ice floats between ocean and atmosphere. Stop by to visit with Matthew Hecht, of Computational Physics and Methods, and see if you can guess which half of an experimental tank will melt its ice faster, with salt water or fresh?

Energy/Time=Power

Every day we access vast amounts of energy to do our bidding from lighting our homes to powering our cars. Join Steve Schreiber, with our Nuclear Process Infrastructure organization, as he guides you through the wide-ranging resources we tap, their relative energy density, and how we might be able to squeeze more work from them. Through hands-on (and even nose-on) activities expand your appreciation of how we creatively obtain the energy we want and need.
