'Secret City' welcomes festival

-A A +A

By Erica Asmus-Otero

Visitors will have a chance to unlock the mysteries behind the former secret city of Los Alamos during the eighth annual Los Alamos ScienceFest July 15-19.
Los Alamos ScienceFest, the town’s signature annual event, is themed “the Secret City Unlocked” in recognition of the recent designation of the Manhattan Project Historic National Park and popularity of the WGN hit TV series “Manhattan.”

Most events during ScienceFest will be centered around the town’s once enigmatic history of the Manhattan Project and includes five days of family friendly events including a “Drone Zone” competition, speakers, a “Science of Beer” event, release of two apps created by LANL scientists, tour of historic buildings, and more.

“Los Alamos ScienceFest celebrates the town’s relationship between science and creativity with engaging exhibits, events and demonstrations,” said Suzette Fox, executive director of Los Alamos MainStreet. “Our town has earned a reputation as a hot bed of activity in science, biotech, engineering and medicine.
Los Alamos ScienceFest provides an opportunity for the community to take pride in that reputation and to inspire the next generation to carry it forward.”
