Los Alamos County Councilor Morrie Pongratz presents a proclamation declaring July 11-15 Los Alamos ScienceFest Weekend and Saturday, July 14 as Discovery Day in Los Alamos County to Los Alamos MainStreet Director Lauren McDaniel during Tuesday evening’s Council meeting. The proclamation states that 11 years ago, the Council voiced its desire to establish a signature tourism event that would set Los Alamos apart from any other place in the nation, as well as provide a wonderful venue for the community to gather downtown. It cites ScienceFest as a ‘shining example of collaboration and strategic planning with community partners, organizations and local businesses’ as well as an opportunity for the community to take pride in its scientific heritage, celebrate the County’s unique relationship between science and creativity, discover new and exciting elements of science, and inspire future generations to explore science, technology, engineering and math fields.
