ATLAS Virtual Visits
A Virtual Visit is a live video connection by a group (typically a classroom) to the ATLAS Experiment at CERN. A guide, who is a scientist or an engineer working on the experiment, meets visitors from the control room or (during planned LHC shutdowns) from the detector underground.
During a Virtual Visit, guides will
- Introduce themselves and describe their work in particle physics.
- Present CERN, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), and the ATLAS experiment, including its goals and accomplishments.
- Invite questions from the audience.
We recommend audiences prepare questions ahead of time. This can be facilitated by viewing this introductory video.
Group Virtual Visits
Groups of at least 10 visitors (such as classrooms) can schedule their own visit by completing this form.
Upcoming Virtual Visits
The Federal Institute of Ceará - IFCE - will perform a virtual visit to the ATLAS experiment in the context of a discussion on Digital Tools for science teaching. The Event is organized by professor Francisco Levi Pereira Braga in Ceará and in Geneva, at the CERN/ATLAS Virtual Visit room by the researcher Denis Oliveira Damazio (ATLAS/BNL). O Instituto Federal do Ceará – IFCE – realizará uma visita virtual ao experimento ATLAS no contexto de uma discussão sobre Ferramentas Digitais para o ensino de ciências. O Evento é organizado pelo professor Francisco Levi Pereira Braga no Ceará e em Genebra, na sala de Visita Virtual do CERN/ATLAS pelo pesquisador Denis Oliveira Damazio (ATLAS/BNL)
Θα ήθελα να σας πληροφορήσω ότι ενδιαφέρομαι για την παρακολούθηση της εικονικής επίσκεψης στον ATLAS. Η παρακολούθηση θα γίνει και από μαθητές της γ Λυκείου που ασχολούνται με τη φυσική. Ευχαριστώ για την προσπάθεια και το ενδιαφέρον σας.
A group of 20 A-level students finished a particle and quantum physics course. To add modern-day context to their studies, introducing students to how particles are detected would be a fantastic idea. Gaining a greater understanding of research and inside laboratories is a unique opportunity and will hopefully inspire future physicists.
Open Virtual Visits
We also schedule periodic open visits that can be joined by individuals or small groups. You can find them in the list on this page. Select the Open Virtual Visit of the date/time/language that best fits, click on it and register.
