June 26, 2021: Two particles meet - online!

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) invites you to its (Virtual) Open Day on June 26, 2021. Visit our Institute digitally, experience experiments live, and discuss projects with our scientists and employees.

On our last Open Day, which took place in early summer 2019, we welcomed over 2,500 visitors to our Institute. Even though an Open Day is not possible this year – at least not in the traditional sense – we are pleased to be able to offer a virtual alternative. This will provide guests from all over Germany (and abroad) with the opportunity to experience our research.

In order to enable this, we are recreating parts of our Institute as an online location that you can enter virtually. In our virtual labs, you will learn how we search for dark matter, measure particle collisions, track gamma rays, and search for formulas to explain the universe. You can also visit our electronic and mechanical workshops and get to know the people and technology behind our research.

On June 26, we invite you to explore the world of particle physics from the comfort and safety of your own home. We are looking forward to welcoming you!
