Is Los Alamos a playful community? In my 28 years here, I’ve seen we are. Not just in the participation in outdoor and indoor recreation of all kinds by people of all ages, nor in the huge volunteer support of programs from PEEC to robotics competitions to youth and teen activities, but in the very science and engineering that is practiced at the lab.
Most of those R&D 100 awards for significant scientific inventions that Lab researchers earn every year come from workers taking extra time to apply the methods and ideas used for the Lab’s national security work, to new applications: creative and productive play. That playful spirit is one of the things that I’ve found makes this town such an attractive place to live.
The branding study that County Council just accepted was an attempt to identify how Los Alamos is perceived by ourselves and those around us: what do we think we are and would like to be; how well do we communicate that, and how can we communicate it better?
