Particle Physics for Scottish Schools
The Particle Physics for Scottish Schools exhibition comes to Orkney for the first time in 2015. PP4SS is a huge exhibition with many interactive hands-on exhibits, graphic displays and presentations. You can find out how particle accelerators work, drive your own electron synchrotron and operate a CERN accelerator complex simulator.
Illuminating Geometry Playing with light and being able to use it to create different colours and moods is a fascination with adults and children. As part of this year’s schools programme there will be an opportunity to do exactly that using simple materials such as recycled paper to make eye-catching lanterns in the form of the Platonic solids.
