The CERN Science Gateway, which opened on October 8, 2023, has been averaging 1000 visitors per day. The centre aims to engage visitors of all ages, including young children, and build an interest in science and technology.

The Visits service at CERN extends a big “thank you” to all the guides who have contributed to the success of the Science Gateway. The dedication of the guides has been crucial in providing an inspiring experience for the visitors. The service also encourages those who have not yet become guides to consider joining the team and becoming part of the outreach and education efforts at CERN. The team assures support at every stage of the journey for those who take the first step.
