Assets In Action: LANL Family Day builds community relationships

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

This week, I wanted to offer my personal kudos to Los Alamos National Laboratory, for a wonderful Family Day.
The event, done as part of the 70th anniversary celebration, was obviously the result of many hours of planning and lots of effort by both staff and volunteers.
The result was a success.
The opportunity for so many to make a different connection to the Los Alamos National Laboratory, was an engaging way to build relationships with family and community.
Our family had the opportunity to tour the Emergency Operations Center and view the hub where the decision makers operate.
It gave a new perspective of how LANL leadership, LANL Emergency Management, Los Alamos County Emergency Management, Chief Wayne Torpy and Chief Doug Tucker must have pulled together to work as a team during the Las Conchas Fire, using collaboration for a common goal.
We toured the CINT-Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies building and had an opportunity to glimpse the future and what possibilities we may see.
The time taken to explain quantum dots to novice minds, put into perspective some new and wonderful things the laboratory is doing, many not even known to those that live just over the bridge.
