Here is the agenda:

From 9-9:30 a.m., the speakers will give opening remarks virtually via this Zoom Link Here. A virtual tour will follow the remarks. Please do not plan to attend in person during this time, as it will be handled virtually and not in person.

Following the live stream, from 9:30-11:30, there will be an open house for visitors. There will be youth operating the equipment and available for interviews.* Please use the Calendly App for March 18 (link here) for in-person visits.
