Every day, SLAC people can be seen collaborating across our beautiful campus. The Main Quad is busy during lunch with colleagues catching up, and our buildings offer spaces to think up new ideas. Explore SLAC through our articles or take our virtual tour. To meet our scientists and learn about the exciting science happening at the lab, register for a public tour or sign up for our events, such as public lectures and community outreach activities.
