The journey begins at the Education and Outreach building. Students will walk with a guide down several sets of stairs, and then through an underground maintenance tunnel to emerge at the historic Yates hoistroom.
The enormity of the hoists is impressive, but the engineering that went into them will amaze everyone! The tour includes stories of the past and how experiments conducted nearly a mile below at the Sanford Underground Research Facility are supported today.
