Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Chiara Cattelan and Lorenzo Banchieri, two students of Liceo Marco Foscarini in Venice, are the authors of the work presented in this post, which along with the others presented in the former posts partecipates in the artistic contest for the EPS 2017 conference, organized by the EU project “CREATIONS” and sponsored by our network.

The two young artists have conceived an installation made up by two canvases set up back to back, representing a particle collision at the LHC from two different viewing angles – the one at the scale of the detector, which is Continue reading “Art & Science 4: Canvas Installation”

Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

Today Ivan Bianchi, professor of Contemporary art at the University of Padova, visited along with the AMVA4NewPhysics network coordinator the Liceo “Marco Foscarini” in Venice, to assess the status of the projects produced by the students for the “Arte & Scienza” contest.

The project has been described previously. In a nutshell, it foresees artistic work by high-school students, inspured by high-energy Continue reading “Art & Science 3: The Universe Between My Fingers”

Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie

by the AMVA4NewPhysics press office

This is the second installment of a series of posts that will publish the results of artistic work by high-school students of three schools in Venice, who participate in a contest and exposition connected to the initiative “Art and Science across Italy“, an initiative of the network CREATIONS, funded by the Horizon 2020 programme of the EU.

The AMVA4NewPhysics network is sponsoring and directing the artistic production in Venice, which has taken place at Liceo Stefanini, Liceo Foscarini, Continue reading “Art & Science: 2 – Simmetrie”

Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker

by Tommaso Dorigo

Yesterday I visited the Liceo “Benedetti” of Venice, where 40 students are preparing their artwork for a project of communicating science with art that will culminate in an exhibit at the Palazzo del Casinò of the Lido of Venice, during the Continue reading “Practical Tools of the Improvised Speaker”

Art And Science: Students At Work

By Tommaso Dorigo

The project “Art and Science: the colours of the Higgs boson” is in full swing in Venice, where 15 to 17-year-old students from three schools (the Liceo Stefanini, the Liceo Foscarini and the Liceo Benedetti) are producing artwork inspired by the CMS experiment and the Higgs boson. In this blog we already reported of conferences held at the schools by the Ph.D. students of the AMVA4NewPhysics network in January.  Now it is time for the students to build on the inspiration provided by those lectures and by the images of particle collisions, detector pieces, and Feynman diagrams.

Today I visited the students who participate to the project at Liceo Foscarini, and gave some hints and suggestions to the students on how to Continue reading “Art And Science: Students At Work”

My First Time at CMS

by Alessia Saggio

Every year, my university organizes a trip to CERN for Bachelor’s students only, to give them the chance to get acquainted with the world of Particle Physics before starting the Master. This year I was one of the three PhD students who accompanied them, and I thought it would be nice to share my feelings here with you since it was a really nice experience.

In fact, it was my fourth time at CERN, but despite that I had never had the chance to visit the CMS detector, the experiment Continue reading “My First Time at CMS”

Another Lecture To Attentive Students at Liceo Foscarini

by Tommaso Dorigo

This afternoon I gave another lesson on particle physics and the discovery of the Higgs boson to a score of selected students of Liceo Foscarini who decided to participate to the project “Arte e Scienza” (which I described in a former post). While exactly two months ago we have an attendance of almost 200 students to the lecture I gave with Cecilia Tosciri and the other ESRs, today the audience consisted only in those 20 students who decided to take on the challenge of producing artwork inspired by particle physics. And they proved very interested in the matter!

Indeed, lecturing high schoolers on particle physics is a bit of a gamble every Continue reading “Another Lecture To Attentive Students at Liceo Foscarini”

Female Scientists On Woman’s Day

by AMVA4NewPhysics Press Office

Today is March 8th – the day internationally devoted to women. And we in AMVA4NewPhysics are sensitive to the subject of raising awareness in the themes of relevance to this day across the world. Discrimination of people based on sex is just as bad as it is any other form of discrimination (based on creed, race, and other categorizations). And we know that women in practically all countries of the world suffer from discrimination that causes them to receive lower wages for the same job, to have fewer chances of career advancement, to have fewer job opportunities, to Continue reading “Female Scientists On Woman’s Day”
