Hands on Particle Physics

Saturday April 8, 2017
8:00 am

 Presenter:  QuarkNet@UNM
 Abstract:  Physics at the most fundamental level - the smallest and most basic building blocks of matter - is an exotic world. But after an introductory talk and an hour working with data from CERN, students will have gained insight about the fundamental matter particles and the forces between them. The students will be introduced to particle physics, experiments and detectors by an active particle physics researcher. After having lunch with lecturers and tutors, they will work on their own with data from the LHC collider at CERN, then video conference to discuss and compare their results with students from other countries and with the moderators at CERN.

The event is sponsored by QuarkNet@UNM. For further information, or to register, please email Prof. Sally Seidel (seidel@unm.edu) or phone her at 277-2087.
