The Virtual Visit service run by the ATLAS Collaboration has been provided since 2010. The ATLAS Collaboration has used this popular and effective method to bring the excitement of scientific exploration and discovery into classrooms and other public places around the world. The programme, which uses a combination of video conferencing, webcasts, and video recording to communicate with remote audiences has already reached tens of thousands of viewers, with a large number of languages, from tens of countries covering the six populated continents.
We present a summary of the ATLAS Virtual Visit service that is currently in use: the booking system, the video conference that is held from the ATLAS Visit Centre and ATLAS Control Room, the possibility to make virtual tours from the ATLAS cavern, and the new system that is being installed in the ATLAS cavern to provide high-quality underground virtual visits. In addition, we show the reach of the programme over the last few years.
