June 2018 - Science Shots in Thessaloniki

"Meet physicists working at CERN! Find out all you would like to know but were too embarrassed to ask!" - This is how the VBScan outreach event in Thessaloniki was advertised. Quite a crowd of people gathered in Ypsilon, a bar with focus on giving room for arts and other performances, and listened to presentations in Greek and English, showing the funny side of particle physics. After the presentations a very lively discussion took place, engaging public and local and visiting scientists.

June 2017 - Beer and Brains in Split

Meet and greet a real-life particle physicist and learn what it really is like to work with “Big-Bang-Theory”-Brainiacs – this chance had locals and tourists alike on the first evening of the first VBScan workshop. A flyer in croatian and english invited them to join the participants of the VBSCan workshop to join them in the Peristil - central square of the Diocletian Palace in Split. Nametags in the style of the flyer identified the participants, who had also brought photographs from CERN or material from their latest scientific result. Discussions, one to one, or in small groups gave people the opportunity to ask, what they never dared asking before. Lively discussions ensued, ranging from physics in general over life at CERN to science in Croatia.
