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
STFC apprentices, IP students and graduates will be ’virtually’ walking across Europe, virtually visiting sites linked to STFC/UKRI. To make the challenge more engaging and informative, there will be webinars providing an overview of the facility and science at each location as teams virtually reach them.
This virtual visit aims to introduce European teachers attending the REINFORCE EU project summer school (http://reinforce.ea.gr/international-training-course/) to the groundbreaking research in the ATLAS experiment at CERN. It allows them to interact with researchers and offers them an authentic experience that they can consequently convey to their classrooms.
This virtual visit is for Year 10 girls at the King's College London Maths School, which have Summer School to inspire them to take maths and physics at A-level and beyond. This visit would allow them to show what is out there in the world of cutting-edge research and to see the value, benefit, and excitement of possibilities within these subjects.
The coordination of Physics organizes this ATLAS Virtual Visit at CEFET/RJ Maracanã. The event is organized by Professor Wagner Souza, coordinator of High School Physics at the Maracanã campus. Two hundred fifty places will be available to high school students from all CEFET/RJ campuses.
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.
