International Masterclasses 10th International Masterclasses 2014
Each year about 10.000 high school students in 37 countries come to one of about 160 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. See here for media coverage.
International Masterclasses 2014 will take place from 12.3. - 12.4.2014, including U.S. Masterclasses.
