Nuit de la science

2016-07-09-17-23-37-NuitDeLaScience

Last weekend I had a quick trip to Geneva. Aside the usual meetings at Cern, I had the pleasure to host another BYOPD event. This time as part of the ‘Nuit de la science‘ at the ‘Musée d’histoire des sciences‘ on invitation of the Atlas group at the University of Geneva.

With in total 17 hours plus preparation and clean-up time, it was quite a bit of work, but it was certainly a lot of fun again. We had over 80 contestants, ranging age three to 74, entering the competition and quite a few more people just chatting with us about particle physics, Cern, Atlas and whatnot.

We also had cloud chamber as well as the ATLASrift as part of the particle physics contribution.

Honour & Glory

This  year’s UEFA European Championship is finally over … and … we have a winner!

Congratulations to Lea for a fabulous victory!

Congratulations also to Bernd K. and Janine for the ranks, especially to Janine who was in the lead for almost half of the championship. I can only repeat what I already said after the group stage: quite an impressive show by some of you.

Down below is the final overview on player points/ranks.
As usual, you find all the details (schedulestandingsmatchboards, yes there’s multiple; scoreboard; and alternative counting) in the Honour & Glory section.

Honour & Glory

The group stage is over, 36 out of 51 matches played and 20 people have placed bets in this  year’s UEFA European Championship.

Congratz to Bernd K., Janine, Lea and Michael for taking the lead after this initial step of the tournament. Quite an impressive show by some of you, I have to admit. Down below is the overview on player ranks after each match. As usual, you find all the details (schedulestandingsmatchboards, yes there’s multiple; scoreboard; and alternative counting) on the Honour & Glory section.

Looking forward to an exciting round of 16!
