Description

ATLAS and CMS Virtual Visits is a project initiated in 2011 for the Education and Outreach program of the two big LHC experiments at CERN. Its goal is to promote public appreciation of the LHC physics program and HEP, in general, through direct dialogue between ATLAS physicists and remote audiences. A Virtual Visit is an IP-based videoconference, coupled with a public webcast and video recording, between physicists at the ATLAS or CMS Experiment at CERN, and remote locations around the world that typically include high school or university classrooms, Masterclasses, science fairs, or other special events, usually hosted by collaboration members. Over the past two years, more than 10,000 people, from all of the world’s continents, have actively participated in ATLAS and CMS Virtual Visits, with many more enjoying the experience from the publicly available webcasts and recordings.  We present an overview of our experience and discuss potential development for the future.
