Open Day - 22nd October 2016 - wrap-up

wrapping up a successful day


We had a very successful contribution to the Open Day in Garching. At the ground floor of the Institute for Advanced Studies we showed the 9500 pieces LEGO model of the Atlas detector, hosted a Build Your Own Particle Detector event/competition and had a little particle physics exhibition with live event displays from CERN and loads of discussions! In total eight members of the group took part in the event and loads if lively discussions with our visitor, who cam by the hundreds. Finally we hosted a screening of 'Particle Fever', a documentary about the discovery of the famous Higgs boson, as well as a little question-and-answer sessions afterwards.

You can find all details and the winners of the BYOPD competition here.
