Don’t miss the Passport to the Big Bang event this Sunday!

Word has been going around for weeks now about the inauguration of the Passport to the Big Bang on Sunday 2 June. Ideal for a family day out or a day with friends, this is a CERN event not to be missed!


The Passport to the Big Bang is a 54-km scientific tourist trail comprising ten exhibition platforms in front of ten CERN sites in the Pays de Gex and the Canton of Geneva. Linked by cycle routes, these ten platforms will mark the same number of stages in the rally for competitive cyclists and the bicycle tour for families taking place this Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

But that’s not all: from 2 p.m., you will also have the chance to take part in a huge range of activities provided by clubs and associations from CERN and the local region. Watch an oriental dance show, have a go at building detectors out of Kapla blocks and Lego, meet different reptile species, learn about wind instruments, try your hand at Nordic walking or Zumba fitness, get a better understanding of road safety with a car rollover simulator, enjoy various concerts or an introduction to Chinese and Japanese martial arts. With all this and more, there's no chance of getting bored!

So don’t forget, this Sunday,
there’s a whole Universe waiting to be discovered!
