Event Details:

SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory is now offering virtual public tours! Join us on Zoom for an hour-long virtual tour by SLAC tour guides to explore some of our facilities and learn about our exciting research!

Our SLAC tour guides will show you around the 2-mile-long Klystron Gallery, one of the longest buildings in the world, and the linac, the world's longest linear accelerator. They will also take you to the Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS), the world's first hard X-ray free-electron laser. They will be available to answer your questions throughout the tour and during the Q&A time at the end of the tour.

The tour is designed for those 12 years of age and above. Individuals 17 years old and younger are welcome but a parent or a legal guardian must register for them and join the minor for the entire duration of the tour.

If you are an educator who would like to sign up groups of students affiliated with schools and higher education institutions, please sign up for an Educational Tour instead.

Tours are free but registration is required. Register for a tour here.
