The Golden Particles


Symmetry writer Lauren Biron won Fermilab’s 2021 Virtual Physics Slam by hosting an award show with a physics theme.

Put on your fanciest outfit and join us for an evening to remember at the first annual Golden Particles, a fake award show celebrating the smallest things in nature and the biggest research efforts in particle physics over the past year.

The Golden Particles was one of five presentations in the 2021 Virtual Physics Slam at Fermilab on April 30. Each presenter had 10 minutes to share their topic in the most engaging way possible. The audience voted this Hollywood-meets-physics spoof as their favorite presentation and named Fermilab science communicator Lauren Biron the winner.
