Hands-On-CERN (E. Johannson et al, Stockholm)

Hands-on-CERN (HoC) is an educational project at the scientific frontier of physics. It is aimed at teachers and high school students studying natural sciences. The purpose of this project is to increase understanding of the most fundamental processes inside matter, and to explain modern research about particle collisions.

After an introduction to the theoretical description of particle physics and the experimental techniques there is the chance to make several measurements with real events recorded by the DELPHI experiment in particle collisions at CERN.
