Prof. Dr. Mossadek Talby, a physics professor at Aix-Marseille University, France, and also a researcher at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, which is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world, will be giving a conference titled as “Fun World of Atomic Particles” at the Özay Günsel Children’s University.

According to the press release issued by Özay Günsel Children’s University, invited within the scope of Fun Science Workshop applications, Prof. Dr. Mossadek Talby will be giving a mini conference on Friday, 28th June 2019 at 12:00 at the Near East University İrfan Günsel Congress Centre Hall 4 where he will be providing details about the structure of an atom, features and theory. It was pointed out that the conference will be given in English and there will be simultaneous translation.

Prof. Dr. Mossadek Talby is conducting research at one of the leading projects of CERN, involving ATLAS (one of the seven particle detector experiments constructed at the Large Hadron Collider, a particle accelerator at CERN, Switzerland) and at the conference, he will be providing details regarding quarks, dark matter, and Higgs Boson (also known as God Particle).

It was pointed out that the conference to be given at Özay Günsel Children’s University will later be repeated suitable for academicians and researchers.

Anna Günsel: “Children will explore the hidden world of atomic particles …”
Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Özay Günsel Children’s University, Anna Günsel made a statement on the matter and expressed that the students of Özay Günsel Children’s University had the opportunity to take basic education and training such as physics, chemistry, biology, experiment, electronics, robot technologies, mind maps, senses, brain and body coordination, educational drama and mind games, art; in offering the children the chance to get a sense of the culture of science.

Furthermore, Anna Günsel expressed that the conference to be held with the participation of CERN Professor Mossadek Talby, the students have the chance to learn the secret and wonderful world of atomic particles as well as learning about where the results of the research can be used in the real world and future possibilities. Moreover, she stated that their vision involved equipping the students with science, technology, engineering, mathematical skills and environmental awareness and contribute to their life success and happiness in this way.

In addition to the above, Anna Günsel stressed that there will be a long-term cooperation with Prof. Dr. Mossadek Talby and added that they aim to develop education and science mission of our country via education and research projects to be realised.

Prof. Dr. Filiz Meriçli: “We are mingling children with science Culture …”
Rector of Özay Günsel Children’s University, Prof. Dr. Filiz Meriçli, stated that Özay Günsel Children’s University was structured in accordance with their aim which targets to develop children's critical thinking skills and basic life skills. She added that through this university, the children had the opportunity to take their first step into the path of becoming a scientist.

Furthermore, Prof. Dr. Meriçli expressed that there are a range of short-term courses, conferences, scientific activities at Özay Günsel Children’s University and within this framework, the first conference will be by a physics professor Prof. Dr. Mossadek Talby, whom they are rather proud of hosting. She said that the children will have the chance to discover the secret world of atoms in a fun way and expressed her belief that children innately had all the qualities of a scientist; stressing that they loved learning and were always curious about everything. She ended her words by expressing that through this kind of hands-on training, they wished to contribute to children's learning enthusiasm and development of scientific thinking and entrepreneurial spirits.
