Scroll to bottom to join us in our Neutrino Day Gather.town space on July 9 & 10.  

 

How it works

This year, join us in our virtual Neutrino Day town. Using Gather.town, a free and simple platform, virtual attendees can explore the event and interact with others as they would in real life. Attendees can talk with scientists, explore interactive activities, experience weird science demonstrations, take virtual tours of the underground, and visit the art gallery and library—all in real time! 

On Friday, July 9, get a sneak peek of the virtual town & explore passive programming. 

On Saturday, July 10 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. MDT, our town is going LIVE. Join scientists, engineers and educators will host interactive activities and conversations in our virtual Activities Room and Booth Room. Our volunteers will be taking breaks to attend Featured Events in the Gather.town Black Hills Main Stage — you should, too! 

While the best Neutrino Day experience is on Gather.town, you will be able to access materials and activities on www.neutrinoday.com or watch our main events live on Facebook, Vimeo and YouTube.
