ATLAS Experiment
Colouring Book

Available in 16 languages, the ATLAS Experiment colouring book introduces kids to the field of High-Energy Physics and the work being carried out by the ATLAS Collaboration.

Learning objectives:

  • ATLAS scientists work together to study particles, the basic building blocks of our universe.

  • ATLAS scientists use a detector to find and identify particles.

  • The ATLAS Collaboration is diverse. Anyone can be an ATLAS scientist.

  • The Standard Model and the Higgs Boson.

Particles of the Universe
Colouring Book

Everything around us is made up of tiny, elementary particles. In this colouring book, kids can meet all of the particles that scientists have discovered (so far!) and learn about the role they play in our Universe.

Learning objectives:

  • Matter is made of tiny elemental particles.

  • Particles are the building blocks of all matter and are responsible for forces.

  • Scientists use experiments to find and study particles.

  • There are different types of particles with different functions.
