The KM3NeT Collaboration together with Institute of Nuclear and Particle Physics of NCSR DEMOKRITOS launch the drawing contest “Draw me a neutrino”. Participants from France, Georgia, Greece, Italy, Morocco, South Africa, and Spain are invited to submit, before March 15h 2020, their best interpretation of a neutrino.

Three different groups will enter the competition:

  • The budding scientists will imagine how is an electron neutrino like;
  • Teenagers that have already been in contact with physics are in charge of drawing a muon neutrino;
  • Adults are invited to tackle down the tau

Through this contest, the KM3NeT Collaboration is seeking to familiarize the broad public to the science carried out with this new European facility that is currently under construction more than 2000 meters deep in the Mediterranean Sea. While the completion of the detector, whose sites will be located off-shore Toulon in France and Capo Passero in Italy, is expected for 2025, the Collaboration is already searching for the best illustration of the neutrinos it will detect!
