Site Snapshot

The Magnet Lab is headquartered in Tallahassee, the state capital of Florida, located in the north of the state midway between Jacksonville and Pensacola on Interstate 10. Jacksonville is about 160 miles (250 km) to the east; Pensacola is 190 miles (300 km) to the west. Tallahassee is serviced by a regional airport located a few miles from the Magnet Lab.

In addition to Florida State University, Tallahassee is home to Florida A&M University and Tallahassee Community College. These and other smaller schools help make Tallahassee a very young city for Florida, with a median age of about 26. Tallahassee features several museums and other cultural attractions, and is surrounded by many natural treasures including the 564,961-acre Apalachicola National Forest, Wakulla Springs State Park, St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge and numerous lakes and rivers. The climate is mild: the average low is 56º F (13º C), while the average high is 79º F (26º C ).
