Experience a visit to ICARUS and MicroBooNE which are neutrino experiments. ICARUS is a liquid argon time projection chamber for neutrinos, which are ghostly particles all around us. Neutrinos may MicroBooNE is also a liquid argon detector looking for a fourth neutrino called a sterile neutrino. There will be a third detector, as well, and the three will act in sequence to help give us more insight into the neutrinos. A scientist involved with the experiments will also be talking to the group and answering questions.
