Masterclass in Particle Physics are an important initiative for High School students wanting to see hot it feels like to live as a particle physicist for one day. They discover the beauty of High-Energy Physics with young researchers telling them about the Standard Model, the Higgs boson and the instruments to measure them. They learn how to look at collision pictures just like their senior fellows, then seeing how important statistics is in establishing robust results. Finally, they meet colleagues (i.e. other students) from all around the world for an online discussion of results.
An exciting day to spend between particles and particle lovers!
Masterclasses arrived in Trento in 2017 and they are usually held in the Physics Department. Due to covid19 pandemics, the edition 2021 is held online. Please refer to this link for more information.
