How do you think scientists make discoveries? They work alone in the lab, day after day, year after year, failure after failure, until the big "Eureka!" moment. NOPE! Most problems scientists try to solve can't wait years. Batteries, for example, are essential if electric cars and renewable energy are going to become a widespread reality. Argonne researchers use a strategy called a "sprint" to develop the next generation of cheaper, more powerful batteries. In this program, students will work in teams and use sprints, just like Argonne scientists and engineers, to quickly design and test their own batteries! Don’t miss out - all science lovers are welcome!

Important Attendance Policy:

Out of respect to our volunteers, please be sure you can attend the programs you sign up for. Confirmation calls or text messages are made 48-72 hours prior to every program.
