Particle physics outreach group

About

The nucleus and elementary particle outreach center operates within Experimental nuclear and particle center of the Faculty of Physics (FP) at Vilnius University (VU). It organizes educational activities for the general public. High school students and their teachers are welcome to visit our centre, to take part in particle physics experiments, attend a lecture on CERN activities and research, or participate in a video bridge. Students will deepen their knowledge in the field of nuclear and elementary particles, learn scientific work and learn how to apply their knowledge in a new situation. Teachers can raise their qualifications by sharing experiences and ideas.
