What to Experience - At a Glance

As in years past, and in collaboration with Hanford contractors, the Safety Expo has conveyed an insight and understanding of the importance of safety.

This year we will engage nationally-recognized keynote speakers, expand our investment in Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) students and other educational resources and partner with new leaders in the field of safety and safety related sciences.

Here's an example of what to experience

  • Hanford's best-in-class integrated transport of radioactive waste
  • Flying drones, virtual reality and robotic demos
  • Interactive STEM displays - created by our local students
  • Live science demos by Kevin Delaney of Street Science - Arkansas' Museum of Discovery Science Expert (as seen on Jimmy Fallon)
  • "STEM Jeopardy" competitions from our local schools
  • An interactive heart that you can actually walk through
  • Jaws of Life live demos
  • Hanford's amazing K-9 program
  • A Bicycle Rodeo for our elementary school leaders
  • And more...
