History on Tap to feature the FERMIAC

-A A +A

Join the Los Alamos History Museum for History on Tap Tuesday to learn about the FERMIAC.

History on Tap, part of the On Tap series presented by the Los Alamos Creative District, is 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at UnQuarked, 145 Central Park Square.

Join the Los Alamos Historical Society for an engaging discussion over food and drinks with Dr. Todd Urbatsch about the FERMIAC.

Urbatsch will demonstrate LANL’s museum-quality replica of this analog computer. Enrico Fermi and L.D.P. King created the FERMIAC in 1947 to study the paths of neutrons using the Monte Carlo method.

More information about History on Tap and other Historical Society programs and events can be found at losalamoshistory.org and by following the Los Alamos History Museum on Facebook.

History On Tap is sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by the Los Alamos History Museum. The On Tap series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion.

All ages are welcome. On Tap is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests. The “On Tap” series happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC at The Nature Center.
