What was there before the Big Bang? Are researchers ordinary people just like everyone else? What will physicists do when they've discovered what's inside particles? Do particles grow when we grow? Does space go on forever? What's inside a black hole?


In 2014, CERN launched an art competition for local primary schools where 50 children were given the opportunity to ask a physicist anything they wanted. The result is a fascinating journey into physics. It is designed to enable primary school teachers and their classes, as well as parents keen to share in their child's discovery of the world, to discuss these questions and explore the answers together.


Through their questions and artwork, the universe unfolds to the most curious among us...


Readership: Children between the ages of 7-12, child educators and parents seeking to begin a conversation with their child about science, in particular physics.
The authors are Michel Spiro, a physicist and former president of the CERN Council, Corinne Pralavorio, who is a communications officer at CERN, Sandrine Saison-Marsollier, who works as an educational consultant, and Marc Goldberg, a playwright and director.
