The ATLAS detector build in Lego

The newest contribution to the Discovery Center family is a 1:50 scale model of the ATLAS detector, build in Lego. It gives a unique chance for showing the public and everyone who might be interested more about the experiment in a fun and alternative way.

Discovery Center scientist Sascha Mehlhase has found his inner playchild and put it to good use in this project, as he has been the Primary Builder. You can read much more about the ATLAS Lego detector here:
