Particle Physics Master Class for Secondary School Students


On Wednesday, 21st March, 2018 the TCD School of Mathematics will join the International Masterclasses in particle physics. This gives secondary school students the opportunity to discover the world of quarks and leptons for themselves, by performing measurements on real data from CERN, to meet active particle physics researchers, and to link up with like-minded students from other countries.

Registration is now closed for 2018

The one-day event starts with a couple of introductory talks about our current understanding of particle physics, and the experimental facilities to study it. After lunch (sandwiches will be provided), the students will analyse recent data from the LHCb detector at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN. Afterwards they are invited to a video conference where they will discuss and compare their results with student groups from around the world and with moderators at CERN in Geneva.
