VISIT THE NEW SCIENCE PAVILION

PUBLISHED MONDAY 24.6.2019

Make a solar charger, play the theremin and get smarter with CERN and the Niels Bohr Institute.

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.

You will find the Science Pavilion right next to FLOKKR.

Experiences in the Science Lounge

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.

The four workshops all take place on the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
