"Between USTAR and the Nano Institute, there's a lot of amazing research going on in Utah that ultimately influences daily life."On Saturday and Sunday there were approximately 1200 and 750 guests, respectively ‒ almost double the normal attendance! Most of the guests were family groups, but there were a handful of college student and adult groups as well.
