Things To Do Weekend of August 2nd and 3rd

fairLooking for something to do this weekend?

As always there are a ton of fun things to do on Long Island.  Take a look at a few of the activities we found and enjoy the day with your family with these great things to do.

Check out Brookhavens Atom-Smashing Fun!  This is the Northeast’s largest particle accelerator. Physicists study what the universe may have looked like in the first few moments after its creation. Here you can visit the accelerator and learn all about the universe. “Take a walk into the tunnel that houses RHIC’s twin accelerators and see where ion beams travel near the speed of light. Visit PHENIX and STAR, two detector experiments bigger than a house and learn about conditions that existed in the universe a microsecond after the Big Bang.  Next watch the “Phenomenal Physics with Mr. Fish” Show, try to Stump the Physicist, and have some hands on fun.
