NCRC: How to make the most of open house Monday

The dedication starts at 10 a.m. Monday in downtown Kannapolis. Organizers expect about 1,000 people to attend.
Consider bringing a lawn chairóthere will only be about 400 chairs set up.
Park for free in the parking deck next to the Core Lab Building, which holds 547 cars.
Overflow parking will be behind the old Cabarrus Bank building, between Wachovia Bank and Lee Clothing, along Main Street and Ridge Avenue and at the end of First Street Extension near the Gem Theater.
The ceremony will take place near the front steps of the Core Lab Buildingóthe side that faces the quad, not Main Street.
After the speeches and ribbon cutting, the public may tour the three buildings.
Tours of the UNC and N.C . State buildings will be self-guided. University researchers will welcome guests throughout the buildings and explain the goals of their programs.
Tours of the Core Lab Building will form under a tent in the grassy area near First Baptist Church. Organizers will lead tours of 20 to 25 people until 4 p.m.
This is the last chance for the public to view the Core Lab before science begins in earnest. The tours will include the nuclear magnetic resonance suite in the basement, where the famous 950 MHz NMR spectrometer is housed, as well as the microscopy suite on the fourth floor.
