From 29 June to 3 July 2022, the CineGlobe international film festival will be returning to the CERN Globe of Science and Innovation for its 11th edition. With open-air screenings of short and feature-length films inspired by science as well as virtual-reality experiences and hands-on workshops, CineGlobe promises to be a highlight of the summer.
Always a popular event for people from CERN and the local area, CineGlobe owes its growing success each year to its volunteers. From welcoming the visitors to running hands-on workshops for families and schoolchildren, their help is vital to make the event a success.

On 9 and 10 July 2022, against the splendid backdrop of Perle du Lac park in Geneva, the Science History Museum is holding its 13th Science Night, on the theme “Et pourtant...” (“And yet…”). This event will allow participants to discover science in a friendly and festive setting.
CERN will be present, hosting a stand called “Rencontre avec l'invisible” (“Encounter the invisible”). The programme includes fun activities to enable old and young alike to discover the fundamental principles of physics and to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson. We’re looking for friendly and motivated volunteers to run the activities, including drawing, workshops, virtual reality, vortex cannon, etc.
