Projecting Particles: 2-Day Workshop
for Digital Latin America, open to grades 8-12
Explore particle physics and projection art with STEM+Arts Teacher, new media artist and Sube, Inc. founder Agnes Chavez. The workshop has been developed in collaboration with Markus Dorninger, Tagtool App developer and new media artist.
Students will have the opportunity to virtually travel to Geneva and get a virtual tour of CERN's ATLAS Detector located in the Large Hadron Collider, have a Skype chat with LANL physicist Michael Graesser to expand their views of the universe and explore physics concepts through projection art.
Students will connect iPads to each other and to projectors for multiplayer paint projection sessions using the Tagtool App.
Workshop is FREE and open to students in grades 8-12.
Access to an iPad is preferred but not required.
Pre-registration is required, space is limited.
