Atlas Virtual Tour STEMArts collaboration

We are thrilled to report that we once again collaborated with Los Alamos National Laboratory Community Programs Office, 516 Arts and the National Hispanic Cultural Center to offer a new student workshop called Projecting Particles.

Projecting Particles was a two-day, hands-on workshop for middle and high-school students from Albuquerque, New Mexico focused on exploring and experiencing the theoretical concepts of particle physics through light, space, form and movement.

On day one of the workshop students participated in the Atlas Virtual Tour to learn about cutting-edge discoveries in particle physics and their theoretical implications, such as supersymmetry and extra dimensions.

On day two, students created live multi-player projection art to explore their understandings of the physics concepts. Local Los Alamos National Laboratory physicist, Michael Graesser, visited the students  and gave an informative talk about the history of field theory.

We held one workshop in Albuquerque in 2014 as part of the Digital Latin exhibit and another in Taos as part of The Paseo art festival.
