Fermilab Users' Outreach Workshop
June 4 & 5, 2009

The Fermilab Users’ Organization will host an Outreach Workshop on June 4th and 5th, 2009, in association with the annual Users Meeting. The workshop will be an opportunity to exchange ideas on effective and practical ways to communicate the excitement of physics and what we do as scientists to students, the general public and government officials. We hope the sessions will encourage members of the Users' community to become engaged in outreach activities.
