Saturday was amazing! We had hundreds of people passing by looking at the ATLAS LEGO models, watching the videos and discussing with the physicists around. We had over 140 participants in the Build Your Own Particle Detector competition, with ages ranging from four to almost 60 years.
We hope to many many more today and will try to announce the winners as soon as possible via email an on this page (but expect it to take about a week or so).
Also remember to put a picture of you and the ATLAS model on our Facebook page (and maybe even like it) to support us and to have the chance to win e.g. some ATLAS t-shirts.
We’re looking forward to yet another exciting day!
Just one example of one of the many detector models made on Saturday.
Over the weekend 28/29 September 2013, BYOPD will be part of the ATLAS activities in its own tent behind The Globe of Science and Innovation. We have recruited 42 helpers that will help to manage the competition and talk about physics and the ATLAS experiment at the same time.
The ATLAS model(s) will be on display and we’ll show various movies related to ATLAS and the model(s) on a large screen throughout the weekend.
