The conferences held in Vermont occur at the Vermont Academy, a private boarding school established in the late 1800s. The Academy is located in the foothills of southeastern Vermont in the Village of Saxtons River. The streets of this small, friendly Vermont village are lined with predominantly 19th-century buildings. Saxtons River has recently been named to the National Register of Historic Places.
The average summer temperature in Vermont is 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit (21-27 degrees Centigrade). However, daytime temperatures can range from the low 60s up into the 90s and be very humid. Casual clothing is suggested. We also suggest bringing a sweater or jacket for sessions, as the rooms tend to be on the cool side.
Child and Family Care Resources
FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC) website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. Because Vermont Academy is a school setting, please be advised that if you are traveling with a child under the age of 12, off-site accommodations are required. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that can assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management will also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns. Each attendee is also encouraged to contact FASEB with any special needs that they may have.
