The Invisible Catalysts in Your Life: How Playing with Atoms is Key to a Better Tomorrow

August 18 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Free

For the first time ever, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) is opening its doors and inviting the public to a series of free, live, virtual tours of numerous labs on its Richland campus. Researchers from across PNNL will be your hosts as you discover the spaces and instruments behind our science and impact. Learn about nuclear explosion monitoring, the science and hardware behind machine learning and artificial intelligence, our work in nuclear energy and environmental management, and so much more. Visit the Glass Lab at our Applied Process Engineering Laboratory, get a behind-the-scenes look at grid operations in our Electricity Infrastructure Operations Center, and get a look at one of five nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers in the Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory.

All tours are one-hour and accessible via Zoom. During the tour, you are encouraged to submit questions to your hosts (researchers at PNNL) via Zoom’s chat function. The tours are open to all ages.

Please see the tour description and registration link below:

Catalysis touches everyone’s life, from the catalytic converter in your vehicle, to how you clean your contact lenses, to creating your plastic water bottle. Catalysts make it easier for a chemical reaction to occur. But how and why do catalysts work? Discover how PNNL scientists are exploring catalysts at the atomic level to make them work harder and smarter. This could lead to a sustainable future—and more!
