For 11 years, Sanford Underground Research Facility (Sanford Lab) has hosted Neutrino Day, the region’s largest free science festival on the second Saturday of July. This annual event is the highlight of our year, as we open our doors to our community and celebrate science and discovery.

This year, we couldn’t imagine breaking tradition. Our team has been hard at work transforming our citywide science festival into a completely virtual event. Speakers, live chats with scientists, hands-on activities, Native American activities, Science Steve, contests and facility tours—everything you’ve come to love about Neutrino Day will be available via our online Neutrino Day hub.

“During this very challenging time, Sanford Lab remains committed to carrying out our mission to advance science through education and public outreach,” said Mike Headley, executive director of Sanford Lab. “We are very excited to present Neutrino Day in this new and innovative way and invite people to join us for our virtual event.”

What’s better than a single Neutrino Day? A whole week of Neutrino Day! With our bursting agenda—and a whole new way to present Neutrino Day—we couldn’t possibly squeeze this event into one day. This year, we are here all week! Sanford Lab is pleased to invite you to Neutrino Day: A Matter Mystery the week of July 6-11.

Sponsored by Sanford Underground Research Facility, Neutrino Day is a science festival taking place at the Sanford Lab Homestake Visitor Center, the Homestake Opera House, and the Research Facility. Since this event includes activities and science-related talks for people of all ages, it’s a great opportunity to excite children about science.
