Are you a high-achieving student studying physics? Are you interested in the finding out about the world’s largest experiment? Want to enrich your knowledge and learn from world- leading particle physicists?
CoEPP, the Centre of Excellence for Particle Physics and the Australian Synchrotron extends a special invitation to high-achieving year 11 and 12 students studying physics to attend the Particle Physics Masterclass: Search for the building blocks of the Universe.
This is a satellite event of ICHEP2012, the International Conference for High Energy Physics, and you will be rubbing shoulders with some of the worlds leading Physicists, on the verge of a major discovery.
The Masterclass is based on currentresearch at the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator tasked with a mission to explore the fundamental building blocks of the universe. It will be taught by researchers working at the cutting-edge of science and will provide you with an overview of the physics involved in the LHC experiments.
This event is being hosted at the Australian Synchrotron, the home to Australia’s largest particle accelerator. By taking part in the program you will work with massive data sets, accessed live across the grid. You will be examining the conditions just moments after the Big Bang, engaged in the race to discover of the origin of mass and help resolve some longstanding mysteries of the universe.
The event concludes at the University of Melbourne with an international public lecture and dinner.
