The 2013 Particle Physics MasterClass at UCL will take place on Monday 18th March.
The 2013 masterclass is now full so unfortunately we cannot take any more bookings for this year.
However, you can also find some further information about particle physics on the international masterclass web site. You can even follow some of the exercises students carry out in the masterclasses.
We invite fifth and sixth form students and teachers with interest in Physics to come and find out about the exciting world of Experimental Particle Physics from one of the most active Particle Physics research groups in the country.
The day will be a mixture of short talks by research physicists, discussion sessions and hands-on activities at UCL. You will have the chance to hear and ask questions about the Large Hadron Collider, the search for and possible discovery of the Higgs boson (thought to be responsible for the origin of mass), the properties of neutrinos (the tiniest elementary particles), and other topics at the forefront of Particle Physics research. You will use computers to study real particle collisions from the ATLAS experiment, and compare your results with students at other universities across Europe and beyond in a video conference led by scientists at CERN.
