Community Outreach

For more than a half-century, INL has put science to work, addressing some of the nation's most pressing environmental, energy, and nuclear technology challenges. Given INL's national prominence as a science and research center there is genuine interest by many people to learn more about the laboratory's operations. We invite you to learn more about INL.
