I personally think that the NIST sounds more interesting and like they 
have a pre-packaged tour that might be more organized than something 
we would get at Lockheed, however I'm a little concerned about how the 
available times for the NIST would conflict with classes. Seeing as 
the tours only run on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 10-12, it seems to 
me it would be difficult to organize with professors so that students 
wouldn't be missing out on coursework.  Maybe I'm just a dork and 
concerned about that and no one else cares, if that's the case, I vote 
NIST, otherwise, lets try to go to Lockheed some afternoon.

P.S. - a big thumbs down for Naval Surface Warfare Center for never 
returning our email!
