The subatomic journey to Nobel Prize experiments at CERN continues – this time in Greece and Cyprus. More than 600 high-schoolers from 12 schools in seven different locations across the two countries will have the unique opportunity to visit the control room of the ATLAS experiment. They will interact in real-time with a Greek scientist involved in the search for the Higgs Boson and learn what it takes for CERN scientists to keep pushing the boundaries of our understanding of the origins of the Universe at the world’s largest particle physics laboratory.
This international-level virtual visit has been supported by the Open Discovery Space and Inspiring Science Education EU projects that aim to help science teachers find innovative ways to make their teaching of physics and science more inspirational, attractive and relevant to students’ lives.
