The Virtual Visit service run by the ATLAS Collaboration has been active since 2010. The ATLAS Collaboration has used this popular and effective method to bring the excitement of scientific exploration and discovery into classrooms and other public places around the world. The programme, which uses a combination of video conferencing, webcasts, and video recording to communicate with remote audiences, has already reached tens of thousands of viewers, in a large number of languages, from tens of countries across all continents. We present a summary of the ATLAS Virtual Visit service that is currently in use – including a new booking system and hand-held video conference setup from the ATLAS cavern – and present a new system that is being installed in the ATLAS Visitors Centre. In addition, we show the reach of the programme over the last few years.
