This is an exciting opportunity to take part in an International Masterclass in Particle Physics. Students will learn more about Particle Physics with Oxford researchers and gain insight into topics and methods of research relating to matter and forces. They will perform measurements on real data from the ATLAS experiment and participate in a video conference to discuss the results.

Learn how we use particle detectors at the Large Hadron Collider to explore the Universe. Study the Z particle and identify its signature in data from the ATLAS experiment. Work with Oxford particle physicists and join other students in a video conference with CERN to present the results.

This event is open to students aged 16-17 years who are studying A-level Physics and Maths (or equivalent) and are interested in studying physics at University level.

Lunch is provided.
