The CERN community is not short of resources... and now is the ideal time to take advantage of them! Here are some new ideas for activities that can entertain, inform or educate during lockdown.
- A few of the S’Cool Lab educational activities for teenagers can be made at home: try the Particle Physics Board Game, the Quark Puzzle, the Bubble Chamber to analyse tracks and the Particle Identities quiz. If you have a 3D printer at home, you can find more activities here.
- Discover CERN in Virtual Reality with the two short clips LHC and CMS and LHC Grid Computing. You can view them in a browser or, for a better experience, on your VR device.
- Do you want to learn more about accelerators? On the CERN Accelerator School (CAS) website, you can find slides and proceedings of almost all past courses. You can also watch the recordings of the 2016 Introduction to Accelerator Physics course, which includes over 30 lectures.
- Watch the great lecture “The Particle World: an introduction to particle physics” by Tara Shears to discover the basics of CERN’s particle physics in an accessible way (part 1, part 2, part 3). Many other interesting Summer Students lectures are available online here.
