EGO at Athens Science Festival

Oct 27, 2022

EGO took part in Athens Science Festival (October 22nd and 23rd) where over 600 children, students and people of all ages discovered Virgo and the science of gravitational waves through many interactive activities organized by Ellinogermaniki Agogi.

In the context of the EU project Reinforce EGO contributed to the setup of a room dedicated to gravitational waves, with an art&science installation developed by the Italian Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN) and a model interferometer. The visitors could also find many stations where they could experiment with GWitchHunters, the Reinforce citizen science demonstrator to help scientists classify glitches in Virgo data.
