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)
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.
The Polytechnic School at the Federal University of Bahia (Poli-UFBA), Salvador, Brazil, will organize between the 11th and 15th of December, 2023 the summer edition of the Arts, Culture, Science and Technology Week (Poli-ACTA). This event happens three times each year and intends to present new perspectives in science and technology for graduate and undergraduate engineering students. At Poli-UFBA, there are 11 undergraduate and six graduate courses in different areas of engineering, such as Electrical and Computer, Mechanical, Production, and Chemical Engineering, comprising more than 5000 active students. A virtual visit to CERN's ATLAS experiment will be organised by Professor Eduardo Simas in Salvador and the Researcher Denis Oliveira Damazio (BNL/ATLAS) in Geneva during this event on December 11th, 2:00 pm (CERN) and 10:00 am in Salvador A Escola Politécnica da Universidade Federal da Bahia (Poli-UFBA), Salvador, Brasil, organizará entre os dias 11 e 15 de dezembro de 2023 a edição de verão da Semana de Artes, Cultura, Ciência e Tecnologia (Poli-ACTA). Este evento acontece três vezes por ano e pretende apresentar novas perspectivas em ciência e tecnologia para estudantes de graduação e pós-graduação em engenharia. No Poli-UFBA, são 11 cursos de graduação e 6 de pós-graduação em diferentes áreas das engenharias, como Engenharia Elétrica e de Computação, Mecânica, Produção e Química, reunindo mais de 5 mil alunos ativos. Uma visita virtual ao experimento ATLAS do CERN será organizada pelo Professor Eduardo Simas em Salvador e pelo Pesquisador Denis Oliveira Damazio (BNL/ATLAS) em Genebra durante este evento no dia 11 de Dezembro as 2:00 da tarde no CERN e 10:00 da manhã em Salvador.
This is an online meeting of the Primary School of Assiros with the ATLAS experiment at CERN in the context of, on the one hand, introducing the students to the centre and, on the other hand, expanding their knowledge about the research fields it deals with.
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.
