It's not magic, it's scientific!

Superconductors take off!

Superconductors are one of the most emblematic materials classes of modern physics and hold great potential to revolutionize science and technology.

During this science show you will discover superconductors and astonishing experiments with zero resistance, quantum levitation, and magnetic memory.

Come to learn why superconductors are indispensable for operating the world’s largest particle accelerator, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN.

Science show accessible as of 14 years old - 45 minutes - Mandatory registration (strictly limited places)
