Given the broken electronic dart board in my students’ office, I spent some time and reworked the interface of my RaspuinoDart implementation to run on my web server. So now you can play (calculate) your dart matches at dartboard.mehlhase.info. At some point I might connect it RaspuinoDart, so one doesn’t have to enter the darts manually.
Enjoy and send comments/remarks … and as usual statistics requests ;)
Wow … what a weekend. After returning from the LHC LLP Workshop in Trieste at 7am on Saturday, I went straight to Garching to set up the scene for our 2017 Garching Open Day event starting at 11am. After getting home at 10pm I got started on the final preparations for Sunday’s 2017 Fotohalbmarathon. But one after the other …
Once again, and thanks to a great team, we had an exemplary Open Day event on Saturday … ATLAS live-info screens and posters, a button machine, a BYOPD competition, a large ATLAS LEGO model, short-film screenings throughout the day, a screening of “BBC Horizon – Inside CERN” in the evening, and several hundred people passing by (47 participants in the BYOPD competition) and chatting/discussing with us. The final QnA after the movie took longer than the movie itself :)
Just left the closing session of this year’s outside ATLAS Overview Week 2017 which took place in Bratislava, Slovakia. Besides the usual physics, detector and performances updates, we had our internal ATLAS25 celebration party on Thursday.
From the outreach side we presented and got people involved in various activities and presented some really nice videos documenting the past 25 years during the celebration.
Obviously there was also some (though not much) time to see the city, the castle, the Most SNP and to escape from the clutches of a corrupt policeman.
Last but not least, the ATLAS collaboration board just granted me the honour to be the next outreach co-coordinator, starting next March :)
