Activity Overview

Put on 3D goggles to see data from the protoDUNE detector and play a game about neutrinos, the lightest known massive particles.

Fine-tune our virtual radio-frequency cavities to keep the beam bunched and on track! An interactive, short game to demonstrate the principle of particle acceleration in the LHC.

Point 4 - LHC

The LHC is the largest accelerator in a long chain of machines, each of which can only accelerate particles within a certain range of energies. Come and discover the special systems that are used to transfer the particles from one accelerator to another.

Point 6 - LHC

Find out more about the ALICE experiment by taking part in activities for children and adults that include: building a model of the experiment out of cardboard or Lego, seeing a supermodel of one of the experiment's detectors, listening to the music of cosmic rays ("the cosmic piano"), and learning about the experiment's data-acquisition system.

Point 2 - ALICE
Point 2 - ALICE

Come and watch a short film about the ALICE experiment, see real particle-detector components, and find out about the methods and technologies that are used to detect and identify particles. Physicists will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

Point 2 - ALICE

Visit the LHC tunnel and go inside the ALICE experiment, which recreates and studies a state of matter that is thought to have existed in the first moments of the universe. Back from this underground visit, you'll be able to meet ALICE physicists and engineers and take part in a range of activities.

Point 2 - ALICE

Come and listen to these presentations, which alternate with the "Fun with physics" show, to learn more about CERN, its accelerators and experiments, and more specifically about the ALICE experiment. Physicists will be on hand to answer any questions you might have.

Point 2 - ALICE

Discover the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), a multi-purpose magnetic spectrometer on the International Space Station (ISS) that measures cosmic-ray events up to teraelectronvolt energies. These events are analysed at the AMS Science Operations Centre located at CERN and at universities around the world.
