The ATLAS Experiment: Live Behind the Scenes Tour South Central & South West Prestige Event
Dr Clara Nellist & Dr Muhammad Alhroob
There will be a British Sign Language interpreter at this event.
What a treat we have for you - a prize-winning film and a live underground visit at CERN! This will be followed by a fun quiz giving YOU the chance to win a fabulous goody bag full of CERN and ATLAS gifts.
Make sure you catch the film A Day with Particles before the live visit as questions will come from both. The mixed media film, created by novice filmmaker physicists from Charles University in Prague, has gone on to wide acclaim and recently won Best Film at GeekFestToronto2020. Click here to watch the film.
For the live visit, join two ATLAS physicists as they take you 100m underground at CERN, to the heart of the incredible ATLAS experiment, one of the largest scientific instruments ever built.
This live visit is a rare opportunity to see this amazing installation before it's closed up for several years for operations. You will have the opportunity to ask your questions directly to Dr Clara Nellist and Dr Muhammad Alhroob of the ATLAS Experiment.
After all that, it'll be your chance to win a super goody bag by joining the live quiz. Prize goody bags will be sent by post from CERN to winner’s homes. Good luck!
Please note that when Zoom capacity is reached, the event will accessible via YouTube live stream on our IOP Regions and Nations channel.
Dr Clara Nellist is a particle physicist working for Radboud University and NIKHEF in the Netherlands on the ATLAS experiment at CERN. Clara has worked on upgrades of the pixel detector, studies of the Higgs boson and top quark, and is applying machine learning algorithms to search for hints of dark matter in the data.
Dr Muhammad Alhroob is a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Oklahoma, USA, and a member of the ATLAS experiment since 2006. He has searched for rare top-quark production processes and is participating in the ATLAS Pixel Detector activities.
