2 Overview 20 Universities and Institutes in 15 towns: concertated „events“ mainly in October / November German „CERN 50 task force“ (5 people) design of common announcement poster translation of CERN calender images as poster update of DESY poster series from „Year of Physics“ Press and TV contact 2 DVDs distributed to institutes 5 movies, mostly in German further material (posters, audios) (also at German CERN50 agenda on (+ short articles in German) TV coverage: news and several science magazines (Nano, Q21, …) Lots of Press articles

3 Special events Many institutes put yearly events under title „CERN50“ Open days, Saturday morning physics, Science fair, extended with exhibitions (posters and more) local guided tours invited speakers in-service teacher training.. Some special events: 4.10. German CERN50 Press Round Table (ATLAS Freiburg)German CERN50 Press Round Table 7.-9.10. Particle Physics Show (Bonn)Particle Physics Show 3.11. Prizes for student competition on radioactivity (Wuppertal) 22.11. Ph.D. Degree of honour for S.Ting and C. Rubbia (Aachen)Ph.D. Degree of honour for S.Ting and C. Rubbia Program overview: Rutherford Uni Mainz

4 New: Particle Physics Show (Uni Bonn) „From Quarks to Quasars“ Triggered by researchers (H.Dreiner, M.K.) planned with students performed by students Topics: Atoms and Nuclei Detectors and Accelerators Elementary Particles Forces and Symmetries Cosmology and Particle Physics 3 performances 1200 spectators school events overbooked accelerator competition CERN T-shirt for best students at DESY linear accelerator (rebuilt in Bonn)


6 Very Useful Centrally organized: Common Announcement poster Movie DVD for exhibitions and schools (copyright?) Euro Big Bang (CERN40) Stars Underground (LEP) Time Machine (LHC) Superconducting Magnets (LHC) The ATLAS movie (LHC) Poster and Animation DVD II more:
