Picnic for US ITER Project Office staff and families
More than 100 employees, family members, and friends of the U.S. ITER Project Office enjoyed barbecue, games, and fellowship at a summer "After Hours" picnic earlier this month in Oak Ridge. The attendees viewed displays and presentations on the ITER project, participated in karaoke and dance competitions, and laughed through a program with "Sunshine Monkeyshine and the Monks," which included several live monkeys. Everyone beat the East Tennessee heat with frozen lemonade and exotic creations from an ice cream bar.
The evening event provided a special opportunity for ITER kids to see their parents' work areas and learn more about how fusion energy can help meet the energy challenges facing today's world. return to Newsline #36
