INTERACT at talks, debates and shows

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.

Join the ATLAS main activity tent and learn all about the ATLAS experiment. Find out how ATLAS studies the Higgs boson; learn what protons are made of and how they collide inside the ATLAS detector; and uncover how ATLAS analyses particle collisions to make new discoveries. Take home a photo of yourself as an ATLAS scientist, sit down for a cup of coffee at our science café and chat with an ATLAS "barista" (physicist).

Come and listen to tunes mixed by CERN's DJs. They'll get you moving with uplifting tracks or relax you with chill-out music.

Point 6 - LHC

Come and watch films about CERN in the Caravan Cinema, an itinerant cinema from the CineGlobe film festival at CERN.

How will the future be shaped by new trends? Come and discuss our shared future in a programme of talks and debates interspersed with comedy, theatre and music. You will hear CERN's Director-General, Fabiola Gianotti, and the head of the CERN Theory group, Gian Giudice, give a glimpse into questions for the future. The head of the LHC's high-luminosity upgrade, Lucio Rossi, will share his enthusiasm for the luminous future of the LHC. Expand your horizons with debates on future intelligence, open science and arts and science collaborations. Enjoy a bit of music with an excerpt of the opera Einstein on the Beach by the Grand Théâtre de Genève and a short performance by world-renowned jazz musician Vladimir Tarasov.

The current model of the universe cannot explain several things, such as the nature of dark matter and why is there no antimatter. Find out how a future particle collider could help search for answers to these questions.
