Many scientists see intellectual as well as aesthetic beauty in their
research. Now an education project from the CMS collaboration is
harnessing artistic beauty to inspire students about the science of
CMS physicist and artist Michael Hoch recently launched the Science&Art @ Schoolproject
to engage students with stories from particle physics, which he hopes
will help them to re-see the natural world in aesthetic as well as
scientifically accurate ways. Hoch says that artistic methods can lead
students to a deeper understanding of the beauty, value and
transformative power of science. "I believe that essential aspects of
our research here at CERN can be viewed as beautiful artistic
creations," he says.
The first Science&Art @ School workshop took place in
Graz, Austria, from 5-7 June, bringing together 62 students from two
high schools nearby: Graz International Bilingual School (GIBS) and BORG Monsbergergasse. Read more.
From these extreme locations on Earth, the audience will be taken on a
breathtaking tour of deep space in the cinematic medium that does it
best: IMAX 3D. Viewers will peer deep inside vivid galaxies and nebulae,
travel over the terrain of Mars, and witness stunning images of the
Sun. The Universe is brought to life through real images and previously
unseen giant-screen 3D simulations based on astronomical data gathered
by the VLT, ALMA, and other telescopes such as the NASA/ESA Hubble Space
Telescope, creating an immersive IMAX 3D experience. Read more.
