The discovery of the Higgs boson last year was one of mankind's most important scientific achievement both in terms of our understanding of the universe, and the worldwide theoretical, experimental, and political collaboration that made it happen. CERN provides extensive outreach on its activities, through documentaion on the web , museums in Geneva, tours of its facilities (which many Irish school-children and teachers have visited) and the travelling exhibition , recently in Trondheim, Derry, and now Dublin before travelling on to Moscow.
In Dublin, the exhibition will take place in the new Science Centre at UCD,
The exhibition is open to the public from 9am to 9pm on weekdays from October 9th to October 28th 2013 (with the exception of Friday October 18th). Everyone is welcome to come and take a self-guided tour. If you would like a guided tour of the exhibit with a physicist, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 01-7162361 to arrange a time.
This exhibition is ideal for transition year students or for students wishing to broaden their understanding of particle physics for the Leaving Certificate examination. To get the most out of a class visit, we recommend that you book a tour. Once a day, there will be a special school lecture/demonstration with a professional particle physicist. Attendance at this must be arranged in advance by emailing email@example.com or phoning 01-7162361.
