EuroPhysicsFun (EPF) is a cooperative project between European physics shows, which works towards forming a community of science shows. EPF actively encourages the exchange of best practices between science shows by means of conferences and exchange programs. In this manner, the knowledge which...

Learning with ATLAS is an on-line science education and outreach "portal," a virtual experimental laboratory for students, teachers and science museum visitors. This portal was developed by a consortium of 11 members (see below). The aim is to improve science instruction by expanding the...

Partners of the initiative are the member institutes of the section for Nuclear and Particle Physics (FAKT) of the Austrian Physical Society (ÖPG).
 
Besides coordinating the various outreach activities at the institutes, it also organizes outreach events on a national Austrian level...

An on-line "virtual theme park" offering a range of games, multimedia applications and films to bring the excitement of CERN's research to a young audience aged between 7 and 12. CERNland is designed to show children what we do at CERN and inspire them with some physics at the same time. Kids do...
