ALICE virtual visits

Virtual visits of ALICE are possible for remote audiences, standalone or in combination with local events.

To book a virtual visit, contact the ALICE outreach team at the e-mail address: alice-outreach-virtual-visits@cern.ch

A videoconferencing setup is needed; the connection is done via zoom. 

ALICE being an international collaboration with members from 40 countries, we can offer virtual visits in many languages, depending on the availability of guides on site. 

It is recommended to schedule a test some days before the virtual visit, in order to test the connection, resolve technical issues and agree on the contents.

International Masterclasses 

International Masterclasses - Hands on particle physics (link: https://physicsmasterclasses.org)

Each year more than 13,000 high school students in 60 countries come to one of about 225 nearby universities or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces, enabling the students to perform measurements on real data from particle physics experiments themselves. At the end of each day, like in an international research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference for discussion and combination of their results.

The ALICE collaboration participates in this very successful programme with the following measurements based on proton-proton and lead-lead data.
