Each summer, CERN goes out to meet the general public, offering visitors a refreshing science cocktail. This year, the summer events began at the end of June with the CineGlobe international film festival. On the theme of “Intelligent futures”, the festival explored the world of artificial intelligence. The festival ended with film screenings during the Science Night event, which took place in the Perle du Lac park in Geneva on 7 and 8 July.
It was the 12th year of the Science Night event, organised by the Science History Museum. A team of 20 volunteers ran the CERN stand entitled “A world of pARTicles”. Young and old alike were able to discover the fundamental principles of physics through entertaining activities: fun physics workshops, drawing activities and virtual reality headsets.
Perfect times for enriching discoveries!
