Did you know that the 4th July is the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson?
Peter Higgs is an Edinburgh local and conducted his research at the University of Edinburgh. We are therefore putting on a very special 10th anniversary party. Come and celebrate with us, at this free event open to all!
Meet CERN scientists, attend interactive shows with the "Bad Boy of Science" Dr Sam Gregson and run the Large Hadron Collider yourself; and make your own crafty particle collision to take home!
Interactive Show with Dr Sam Gregson
Showings at 13:30 & 15:00 (and lots of other fun activities in-between!)
The amazing discovery of the Higgs Boson in 2012 was one of the most important scientific discoveries of this century. But could you have made the discovery for yourself?
In this highly interactive, highly energetic, comedic show, you will take control of the infamous large hadron collider - the world's largest and most powerful atom smasher. Can you hunt the Higgs and claim the Nobel prize for yourself?
You will need a smart devices to fully participate (phones/ipads), some can be provided but if you have access to one, please bring it!
Registration is now live!
