This is an exciting opportunity to take part in an International Masterclass in Particle Physics. Students will get insight into topics and methods of basic research relating to matter and forces. They will perform measurements on real data from the ATLAS experiments at CERN and participate in an international video conference to discuss the results.

Who is it for?

The event is aimed at Year 12 students with passion and potential in Physics. Schools are invited to bring up to four students to the event and we encourage schools to invite an equal number of girls and boys.
