NIST has been undergoing campus development, including construction of new facilities and renovations of the existing buildings for the past 12 years, to provide the best facilities possible for the learning of our students. This has continued during the current year, and we had planned several projects for this summer, making it necessary for us to cancel our usual summer program.
In reviewing the full scale of the planned campus development work with our architects and construction professionals, and taking into account the latest information we have about these projects, we have become concerned that we cannot provide the high quality summer school and sports camps that NIST has developed a reputation for providing. As much of the campus will be under construction over the summer, access to our facilities will be greatly limited , which would be a significant challenge to ensure a safe and secure environment.
Though our traditional programmes will not be held, we will be hosting at least one large event in conjunction with a major U.S. sports organization, and more information will be posted soon!
