This year, Neutrino Day returns to an in-person format, bringing all the excitement and adventure of past Neutrino Days. This free, citywide festival will take place in Lead on Saturday, July 9, 2022. 

Join us for hoistroom tours, science activities and exhibits for all ages. Learn from live video chats with scientists underground at SURF, and engaging talks about the research happening beneath your feet. You won’t want to miss a tour of the Yates Hoistroom, wild science demonstrations with “Science Steve” Rokusek or The Journey Museum's immersive planetarium! 

Neutrino Day’s headlining speaker is Dianna Cowern, creator and host of the viral “Physics Girl” YouTube series. With over 2 million subscribers, “Physics Girl” is a resource for fun physics videos and has featured legendary figures including Bill Nye.

Get your free hoistroom tour ticket at the Visitor Center, then take busses to other locations throughout Lead.
