Fermilab Hosts First-Ever Spanish-Language ‘Ask-a-Scientist’ Event (Atienda a Una Lectura Gratis)

Fermilab is about to host its first ever Spanish-language Ask-a-Scientist event, which will include a talk, a tour and the chance to ask scientists questions.

“We host an Ask-a-Scientist event every month, but this is the first one we’ve put together for the Spanish-speaking community,” said Andre Salles, media and community relations specialist. “The information on our website is in Spanish, but the (event begins) with a talk about neutrinos by scientist Minerba Betancourt and featuring Spanish-speaking scientists who can answer questions, free of charge.”

The Spanish-language event is set for March 12 and takes place twice a year; English-language Ask a Scientist tours generally take place on the first Sunday of the month.
