Event details

Did you know that the 4th July is the 10th anniversary of the discovery of the Higgs boson?

Peter Higgs is an Edinburgh local and conducted his research at the University of Edinburgh. We are therefore putting on a very special 10th anniversary party. Come and celebrate with us, at this free event open to all!

Meet CERN scientists, attend interactive shows with the "Bad Boy of Science" Dr Sam Gregson and run the Large Hadron Collider yourself; and make your own crafty particle collision to take home!
