Talk to scientists at CERN, work with real particle physics data and attend particle physics lectures on this day-long Masterclass
Year 12 only
The Masterclass is a one day event that gives sixth form students (and their teachers!) the chance to learn about particle physics from the scientists actually doing the research.
Students will attend talks, workshops and work with real particle physics data, sharing their findings with Physicists at CERN via video link. The masterclasses are designed to provide excellent support for the material on Particle Physics that is in many 16+ curricula.
We ask that teachers cover basic material on particles (protons, neutrons, electrons, quarks, neutrinos, muons etc.) with students before attending.
A refundable deposit of £3 per student is required. This is to ensure the small number of places can be distributed fairly and not held for groups that do not attend.
