Monday, June 05, 2023, 10:00am

The mobile exhibition "The Big Bang in Motion" shows how particle physics has revolutionized our understanding of the universe. Visitors can experience an exciting journey through time from the Big Bang to the present in just a few steps. The exhibition conveys complex content in an easy-to-understand manner and at the same time, it contains interactive elements that allow visitors to get involved. The interactive games such as "Universe Lego", "Hadron Jenga" or "Particle Twister" are fun for all ages and make science understandable in a fun way. Visitors also learn about the people who work in particle physics, how and why research is conducted on this topic, and above all, how it affects their everyday lives and society as a whole. The "Big Bang Guides", young people who are enthusiastic about particle physics, will be on hand to answer questions.

The exhibition is suitable for schoolchildren aged 12 and over.
