Whether you’re an aspiring young scientist or a long-time science enthusiast, you’re sure to enjoy Lamont-Doherty’s Open House.

This annual celebration dating back to 1949 features talks by Lamont’s world-renowned experts, opportunities to connect with scientists one-on-one about their latest discoveries, and dozens of hands-on activities for kids and families to learn about how our planet works.
