The National 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 accelerators 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. 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 24 October 2016, places will be allocated to schools on a random basis. All schools will be contacted and notified as to whether they have a place on 26 October 2016.
