Extraordinary peculiarities and where to find them

CERN, the European Organisation for Nuclear Research, is one of the world's largest and most respected centers for scientific research. For Roskilde Festival 2019, they join forces with the Niels Bohr Institute, a research institute at the University of Copenhagen whose work covers a broad perspective of physics.

During Roskilde Festival 2019, CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute welcome you inside the Science Pavilion where they will host several workshops where they invite you to see the world in a new way and at the same time question the community around you.

Get your hands dirty building your own detector to see elementary particles and cosmic rays coming down from the sky. Construct solar chargers for the Tower of Power and learn about the secrets of alcohol's physical (and sometimes magical) properties. You can also master (well, sort of!) the theremin.

Workshops in the Science Pavilion:

Sunday 30 June:

11.00: Make a Solar Charger
13.00: Experience the Subatomic World (Cloud Chamber)
15.00: Play the Theremin
17.00: Beer Bongs and Bosons (Science Lounge)

Monday 1 July:

11.00: Make a Solar Charger

FLOKKR activities

CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute also host a few activities in FLOKKR, including a talk with Freaky Clown titled How I Rob Banks and a theremin talk with Dorit Chrysler.

And how about a debate on the energy of the future?

Representatives from the wind power and the nuclear power industries meet for a debate where the audience will hear inspiring speeches. You will also have the opportunity to ask critical questions and cheer for those with whom you share opinions. Are we ready to try new forms of energy or do we say no to nuclear power? Is there any alternative for a country like Denmark, which has no mountains or endless quantities of deserted land? Presented by CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute.

Moderator: Søren Bjørn-Hansen

Representatives from Modern Nuclear (Ask Løvschall-Jensen vs Wind (Brian Vad Mathiesen) vs the Political Think Tank Concito (Sara Hansen)
