Galway students will be in for a cosmic treat this September as the particle physics laboratory CERN is to bring its Accelerating Science travelling exhibition to the city, CERN’s director-general Rolf-Dieter Heuer announced in Dublin last Friday during the Euroscience Open Forum (ESOF).

Aimed primarily at secondary school students, the exhibition apparently starts off by giving a history of the universe. Visitors to it will also get a chance to activate a model of the LHC to learn more about how a particle detector works and to find out what happens when particles collide in the LHC.
