Particle Physics Shows

In 2004 we created a whole show dedicated to particle physics. In 2008 a new version of this show was performed in different cities outside of Bonn. In 2013 we came up with the current version of the show which premiered in Oxford in 2014. This show follows the developments in particle physics. From the discovery of the structure of the atom to the discovery of the Higgs boson. Since the topic is more complex, it is aimed at a slightly older audience (14+).

What's (the) matter?

2014. The discovery of the Higgs boson inspired us to restructure and rewrite our previous particle physics show. The two main characters use magic umbrellas to go on a journey through space and time. Stopping at different important stages of particle physics. Starting at the discovery of the structure of the atom, over development of particle accelerators, up to the detection of the Higgs boson.

The second Particle Physics Show

2008. This year the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN was starting operation. Inspired by this event the BMBF (German Federal Ministry of Education and Research) started the exhibition "Weltmaschine" ("world machine"). The exhibition was first held at the underground train station  "Bundestag" in Berlin. Later it traveled through Germany and also visited Bonn. Our second Particle Physics Show was performed four times at the exhibition in Berlin in November 2008.

The first Particle Physics Show

2004. The first Physics Show dedicated to particle and astroparticle physics was put on to celebrate the 50th anniversary of CERN.
