6th International Particle Physics Masterclasses 2010
We will organize the International Masterclasses 2010 in a three-weeks period from 15.02.10 - 05.03.10. Each day up to six out of about 90 institutes participate.
Discover the world of Quarks and Leptons with real data
get out of school for one day and come to a nearby university or research centre
get insight into topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces
perform measurements on real data from particle physics experiments at CERN
participate in an international video conference for discussion of results
Hands on Particle Physics Masterclasses
provide an opportunity for 15- to 19-year old students to discover particle physics
take place in more than 80 places in 23 countries with more than 5000 participants worldwide
are organized every year as a three-weeks period in March
are organized at TU Dresden in the framework of the European Particle Physics Outreach Group (EPPOG)
Each year about 5000 high school students
in 23 countries come to one of about 90 nearby universities
or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries
of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces, enabling the students to perform measurements
on real data from particle physics experiments themselves.
At the end of each day, like in an international
research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference
for discussion and combination of their results.
