‘Eureka! Eureka!’
The name Archimedes has become synonymous with the word Eureka! As the story goes, Archimedes was presented with a challenge. To get the creative juices flowing, Archimedes turned to his trusty bathtub for a little R&R. Not even thinking about the problem at hand, he drew a bubble bath and hopped on in. 

As the water sloshed over the side, he realized that he had a solution to his problem. Realizing that the weight of the water displaced depended on how much of his body was immersed, he could now measure density.

Archimedes had his explanation and the famous principle was born. Completely forgetting about his lack of clothing, he paraded through the streets shouting “Eureka!”, meaning “I found it!”

Los Alamos ScienceFest celebrates the history and science of Los Alamos through fun and engaging activities and events for people of all ages. This signature event of Los Alamos is well attended and draws visitors from across the state of

New Mexico and beyond. It is our mission to: 

  • Celebrate the scientific heritage and excellence of our community by showcasing cultural activities for people of all ages 
  • Connect with scientists and engineers and experience how science affects our everyday lives 
  • Raise awareness of STEM education (and ‘Eureka!’ moments) 
  • Enable enrichment through science and technology
