The Bonn Physics Show, developed by Prof. Herbert Dreiner, is a show about particular physics. The show is aimed at non-physicists between 14 and 99 years of age. Its objective is to explain some basic concepts of particular physics, including the discovery of the Higgs boson, in an entertaining way. The program includes 28 experiments demonstrated life, as described here.


Two shows were organized in Valencia on September 19, 2017. The first one was for high school students and the second one for general public. The shows were a huge success, with over 300 people participating in each session.


There was also a “hands-on” practise session on September 18, 2017, with the aim of organizing a similar Spanish event at some point and getting professors and students interested in scientific communication. Participants of this session included University of Valencia’s master students and high school teachers.
