This year’s Los Alamos ScienceFest will host a one of a kind workshop for high school aged teens.

Artist Agnes Chavez will lead the workshop, which will explore how to create a live projection art performance using an iPad app called Tagtool. Participants will learn about particle physics concepts, and how physics theories are expanding our understanding of who we are and where we come from.

The students will work in teams over the course of a 2-day workshop to storyboard, design and perform their science based projection installations. Then they will get the opportunity to perform these works of art live during the Los Alamos Summer Concert Series, on the Friday of ScienceFest.

The workshop is July 14-15 at the Los Alamos Teen Center. Students must pre-register, and there are only 10 spots available. Each registrant would need to commit to being at the Teen Center 2-6 p.m. both days for the workshop, as well as at 8:30 p.m. both days for the dress rehearsal and live performance. To register,  call the Los Alamos Teen Center at 505.695.7415, or stop by in person at 475 20th St. in downtown Los Alamos. 

This spectacular event was made possible by the generous sponsorships of Trinity Urgent Care and the Los Alamos Teen Center.
