About this Event

IMPORTANT NOTICE

Due to the current pandemic, we cannot confirm if these events will take place in person, or virtually via Zoom, but we will make this decision in December. Even if we are able to host the event in person, there will be an option for the talks to be run virtually for those that cannot attend but still wish to be involved - this virtual masterclass will take place on Thursday 4 March 2021.

INFO

The Particle Physics Masterclass is a popular series of one day events for sixth form students and their teachers, run by particle physics researchers at various institutes all over the country. Since the inception of the programme in 1997, they have proved to be stimulating and informative for thousands of students and hundreds of schools. These classes provide excellent support for the material on Particle Physics which is in many 16+ curricula.

The Masterclasses at RAL provide the chance to hear talks by leading Particle Physicists from RAL and CERN, tour one of our particle accelerators (Diamond Light Source and the ISIS Neutron and Muon Source) and use data from the Large Hadron Collider to find a Higgs Boson with staff from RAL’s prestigious Particle Physics Department. Programmes, photos and lectures from previous years can be found on the RAL Masterclass website.

The Masterclasses at RAL are repeated four times, Tuesday-Friday.  The day runs from 09:30 - 16:30.  When registering, you will be asked to indicate your preferred dates.  Please note that this event is often oversubscribed, and so unfortunately applying for tickets does not guarantee a place.  Once registration closes on 16 November 2020, places will be allocated to schools on a random basis.  All schools will be contacted and notified as to whether they have a place - and whether the event will be 'in person' or virtual, by 1 December 2020.

If you have any questions, please contact us at visitral@stfc.ac.uk.
