SLAC on Tap

SLAC on Tap banner

SLAC has been bringing science to the Bay Area for over 50 years. SLAC on Tap is a bimonthly event that aims to teach the community about what we do through informal talks and interactive science demonstrations geared towards the general public. Have a drink (no host - what’d you expect), learn about who we are and even do some science of your own.
