Dealing with Kits after Day 1
Help and troubleshooting with the school children
Teamwork makes the dream work
Having fun while learning
Cracking the Code
Learning the power of Scratch
Learning what a Supercapacitor could do and what is inside the average USB cable!
Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS) An experiment based at CERN which aims to learn about cosmic waves and search for antimatter in space as well!
Here we are getting an interesting session on the essence of cosmology, a subject that is so new yet makes me so dreamy!
At CERN, top minds always look for ways that their science can help people: we have a session on how radiotherapy progresses near the LHC
A microscope you probably won’t find at your local science store while LHC is the world’s biggest microscope that you probably couldn’t even fit in your house!
A cross section of the Compact Muon Solenoid… or at least the model of it! I didn’t get to visit the real deal since they were running experiments at the moment
Now who doesn’t know the God particle? here, we have a detailed discussion with a senior scientist on the properties of the Higgs Boson
A hall full of Supercomputers! I could hear their mechanic whirring even through the glass window. Apparently, this is the true “Brain” of the LHC
Getting familiar with the essential parts of the LHC that help it produce and collide protons
The command centre responsible for the running of the LHC and the controls to launch the next beam.
DID YOU KNOW? This gas cylinder can fuel the reactions in the LHC for an year!
Hundreds of magnetic disks like these are used to store the data from billions of collisions carried out in the LHC. Who knows, the next big particle’s discovery could be hiding in these tapes!
Some materials we used carryout a gas chamber experiment
Yay! electronic boards and processors! The circuitry on these seem baffling to me for now
Wonder what the future holds…
The giant science factory! This is where the journey of every proton begins before they get annihilated in the LHC
Just so you know I was there 😛
…Then there were those people who said, “LEGO is for kids”
A beautiful graphic representation of how the different particles are detected in ALICE (A Large Ion Collider Experiment)
“And this is what happens when you ‘peek’ into a particle accelerator”
Learning how the beams in the LHC are packed into bunches of protons
Analysing a faulty section of the LHC Tube
The Cryogenics Facility at CERN: a very fun place to CHILL out!
A section of the LHC main tube showing how the beams of proton go round in opposite directions and in separate tubes.
Figuring out the Cosmic radiation and its patterns!
The not-so-sleek Macbook pro!
When the mentor is mentee!
