Nestled amongst the steam and diesel powered accelerators of old (ok – trains), Cockcroft Institute researchers have recently been spotted communicating particle accelerators to the next generation of scientists. The one day Accelerating discoveries event, which was hosted by the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry, saw close to 1000 members of the public being immersed in our very own VELA virtual reality experience, buidling accelerators with acceleratAR, visiting VELA through our 360 degree dome show and colouring in the ATLAS detector.
A special thanks to the Manchester Science Festival Event organisers, the staff at the Museum of Science and Industry and to our science communicators – Alex Alexandrova, Alisa Healey, Daniel Bultrini and Tom Pacey – for helping to make the day such a great success!
