CERNland – Physics for Kids

CERN is the international research laboratory who, amongst other things, run the Large Hadron Collider and gave us the World Wide Web.

With a range of games, multimedia applications and films CERNland is a virtual theme park developed to bring the excitement of CERN’s research to a young audience aged between 7 and 12. CERNland is designed to show children what they do at CERN and inspire them with some physics at the same time.

You can visit the site here: https://project-cernland.web.cern.ch/project-CERNland/

There are different games to play, such as guiding SuperBob round the Large Hadron Collider or try building atoms by collecting electrons, protons and neutrons. There are videos which explains what CERN does and some rather awful songs…. :)

Also for older students – you can access a wide range of images and videos about CERN via their multimedia document server. Good for A level physics.
