Particle Physics Masterclasses are one day events hosted by Particle Physics groups at Universities and Laboratories across the country. They are aimed at students taking particle physics modules at AS or A level, but are open to any student interested in studying particle physics. Some Universities also run days specifically for GCSE students.
The different masterclasses include a selection of the following activities, run by particle physicists: lectures, hands-on workshops, computer sessions, laboratory tours, live video chats with CERN and international masterclasses.
Every masterclass is slightly different, but all provide excellent support for particle physics in the curriculum and deliver a fascinating insight into this exciting field of physics!
Dates for the 2017 calendar year will appear here as they are set.
Many of the Particle Physics Masterclasses are oversubscribed. Teachers who would like their students to participate should contact the appropriate person as soon as possible.
