Former atomic and INL workers invited to Science Day at the Museum of Idaho

Nuclear Care Partners, an organization that provides benefits guidance and in-home care to former atomic workers, invites former atomic and Idaho National Lab workers to visit the Museum of Idaho to tour the museum, meet local health care vendors, and enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup.

Attendees will receive free entry to the museum and are invited to take a tour of the “Archimedes: Science and Innovations” exhibit to learn more about the Italian mathematician whose inventions revolutionized the ancient world. The exhibit offers more than 60 items — most of them interactive — that challenge visitors to solve puzzles and experiment with ancient technology.

Various local vendors that provide medical equipment, specializing in senior living, hospice, and more will also be in attendance to provide information and answer any questions former workers may have.

The event will take place April 12. Lunch will be served anytime from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Museum of Idaho, 200 N. Eastern Ave. All former workers are invited to attend this event free of charge and will be entered to win a door prize. Former workers should RSVP by Monday by calling 208-715-3025.
