Congratulations to the ATLAS Outreachers at CERN for beating out more than 500 other projects, and winning the "Best Online Event" from the Digital Communication Awards for excellence in online communication. The award was presented for an amazing program called ATLAS Virtual Visits. But winning the award isn't the big deal here - the big deal is what this Virtual Visits program enables.
From the ATLAS Virtual Visits site: "Using web-based video conferencing tools, participants talk with an ATLAS physicist, receive a tour of the control room, and get answers to their questions."Providing public access to this amazing resource ATLAS Experiment is appropriately dubbed one of the world's greatest scientific adventures.You can learn more about the Virtual Visits program by visiting the ATLAS Experiment website.
