LEAD, S.D. – Lead’s visitor’s center serves also as an education area for the Sanford Underground Research Facility, or SURF.
Mike Headley, Lab Director at Sanford Underground Research Facility and Executive Director for South Dakota Science and Technology Authority, shared his excitement.
“It’s being able to leverage our education and outreach work as it’s matured over time and really make this place somewhere that people really want to come and spend time, and enjoy coming up to Lead and hearing about what we’re doing, and really the amazing world-class science that’s being done right here in the Black Hills,” Headley says.
SURF will continue to work closely with the visitor’s center through the process.
The main focuses will be on the gift shop which will offer products geared towards Lead’s history and science in addition to science education at the center.
