CERN interactive exhibition comes to Nicosia Mall

CERN’s popular interactive experience is coming to Cyprus for the first time. It will be hosted by Nicosia Mall from May 25 to June 2. The exhibition is organised by the Research and Innovation Foundation, in the context of the 2019 Research and Innovation week.

CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, is the largest experimental research centre for particle physics in the world. Visitors of Nicosia Mall will have the opportunity to enter the tunnel and explore the exhibition, free of charge. They will discover the experiments conducted at CERN in a fun and interactive way, to play, and to be immersed in two different universes through the Higgnite application.

Through this learning tool from the future, the complex inner workings of CERN’s underground facilities are explained in a simple, easy-to-understand way. The interactive exhibition comes to Cyprus after touring the rest of Europe and aims to make CERN’s work accessible to the public. It is mainly tailored to help the young uncover their passion for science.

Young and old visitors will have the chance to come close to the heart of the grand experiment which aspires to answer some of the biggest questions facing mankind. Among other things, visitors of Nicosia Mall will have the opportunity to play football with protons inside the tunnel.

CERN was founded in 1954 in Geneva by 12 European countries. More than 9,500 scientists are employed or working on experiments conducted in its globally unique facilities.

The exhibition is an unforgettable experience and an irreplaceable tool to explore the mysterious world of nuclear physics.

Exhibition hours:

11:00-14:00, 16:00-18:00
