On Wednesday March 13, the Sapienza Physics department will host a hands-on master class for high school students on Particle Physics along with nearly 200 other universities and research centres worldwide.
Students will have the opportunity to glimpse into the world of sub-atomic particles and learn about the experimental techniques and tools such as accelerators and revelators that are currently used to study this microcosm.
The master class will include a practical hand-on session in the laboratory, where students will use the very tools employed by Sapienza researchers and observe events such as the collisions between high-energy protons documented by the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider in Switzerland.
The lesson will end with a live videoconference held jointly with other universities around the world participating in this initiative.
The “Hands On Particle Physics” Master Class is organized by the International Particle Physics Outreach Group.
