Tours

We plan to offer tours of certain facilities at Fermilab during the school, although nothing has been confirmed yet, so check this page later!

To give you a taste of what we hope to show you, the following areas have been visited by previous groups:


D0 and Tevatron

For over two decades, the CDF and DZero experiments took data at the energy frontier at the Tevatron collider. The DZero detector remains largely intact. This tour includes stops at the DZero assembly hall and control room, the Tevatron tunnel adjacent to the DZero detector, and culminates with the DZero detector and the collision hall.


Neutrino underground (MINOS)

The NuMI beamline sends neutrino beams through detectors for several experiments, some of which are located in an underground area on-site. This tour takes attendees 300 feet down the access shaft to the NuMI tunnel and underground areas housing the MINERvA detector, and the near detectors for the MINOS and NOvA experiments.
 

Test Beam Facility

The Fermilab Test Beam Program provides flexible, equal, and open access to test beams for research and development of detector technologies. The facility uses two versatile beamlines to provide beam in a multitude of particle types and a range of energies, with which users can test equipment or detectors.  

 

 



Social events

We plan to offer a number of social events throughout the school, contingent upon available funding. Details will be posted to this website when available.
