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 Group Visits
Join us for an interactive virtual visit as we explore the inner workings of the CERN ATLAS experiment during our Science Information Session orientation class. Led by our experienced host, this visit will provide a unique opportunity to gain insight into one of the world's most exciting and cutting-edge scientific endeavours.
Students in Matera, Italy, will participate in a virtual visit to the ATLAS experiment at CERN, where they'll engage with cutting-edge research and STEM experts, inspiring future scientists and engineers.
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.
