Workshop in Particle Physics
This workshop, within the framework of the international program “Hands on Particle Physics” and held at the UB from 2005, brings the students of 2nd baccalaureate to Particle Physics with real data of the LHC accelerator of CERN.
Every year thousands of high school students from all over the world become particle physicists for a day.
What are the fundamental constituents of matter?
Which forces hold them together?
How can it be that to understand the evolution of the Universe is necessary to study the tiny elementary particles?
What does the discovery of the Higgs boson represent?
Today the ICCUB is hosting a new edition of the Masterclass in Particle Physics, held at the ICCUB under the name of Taller de Física de Partícules. A second edition of this activity will be held on 16 March. Altogether, 160 bachelor students from 149 different Catalan high schools will take a day off from school to come to the ICCUB and dive into the actual data.
Giovanni Passaleva, the spokesperson representing the Large Hadron Collider beauty experiment (LHCb) spoke with El País journal about the relevance, the latest findings and the goals of this promising research.
Thanks to five successful editions, the Beamline for Schools (BL4S) competition that offers highschool students the chance to conduct a real experiment at a real research laboratory has become a very popular science competition that has so far motivated almost 10,000 students to learn about particle physics.
ICCUB will host a new edition of the Masterclass in Particle Physics, held at the ICCUB under the name of Taller de Física de Partícules. The registration for the two editions offered this year will be opened from January 22nd to 29th.
