Fermilab produces the world’s most intense beam of high-energy neutrinos, particles that may hold the key to understanding why the universe is made of matter.
Scientists from Fermilab and other U.S. institutions played key roles in the discovery of the Higgs particle at the Large Hadron Collider. They now are upgrading the LHC experiments to take data at higher energy.
Using the cosmos as a laboratory, Fermilab scientists explore dark matter and dark energy, which constitute 96 percent of the universe.

Student and Internship Programs
Our Cooperative Education Program (Co-op Program) provides the opportunity to be integrally involved in the development and operation of the laboratory for individual exploration and project work. It supports a theory-practice model of learning in which students apply what they are learning as undergraduates at their home institutions to projects vital to our lab’s scientific mission.
