Tallahassee Mag Lab Open House

On Saturday, February 24, the MagLab will host its annual Open House! This free event features something for visitors of every age: hands-on demonstrations, self-guided tours, activities from our educational partners, food, and the chance to meet and chat with our scientists and other MagLab staff. It’s also a chance to do good for the community: The canned goods we collect as the unofficial price of admission go to America’s Second Harvest Food Bank of the Big Bend.

Open House offers an up-close look at our record-breaking 45-tesla hybrid magnet, our 900-megahertz superconducting magnet, our new 32 tesla all superconducting magnet, and other powerful research instruments. With information and activities targeting a variety of ages, this event has become a popular family outing and is a can’t-miss opportunity to show children how fun science can be. That doesn’t mean the fun and learning are over once our visitors leave. We’ve been busy building up online demonstrations of some of what you’ll see at Open House, so you can extend and apply what you’ve learned long after the day’s over.

When: Saturday, February 24, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: MagLab, 1800 E. Paul Dirac Drive, Tallahassee
Cost: Free! But please bring a canned good to donate to America’s Second Harvest Food Bank of the Big Bend.


February 5-9
Please encourage your child to be very careful with the money they bring to spend at the bookfair. It is best to put money in an envelope/ziploc bag labeled with your child’s name and have them take it to the teacher for safe keeping. Also, please remind students that little toys and trinkets purchased at the bookfair do not need to be played with in the classroom.
