In 2014 the Particle Physics group at the University of Glasgow will again hold a one-day schools event for students going into 6th year.

Students will experience some of the excitement of research in a rapidly-developing field, with hands-on sessions in particle detection and analysis of real collider data, led by experts working at CERN and Fermilab. 

The day-long event will take place on Tuesday 17th June 2014 in the Kelvin Building at the University of Glasgow. There is no charge and lunch is provided.  Participation is by advance booking only, and the limited places available are allocated by ballot.

See booking information below.

If you are a pupil and would like to attend, please talk to your physics teacher in the first instance.

If you are a teacher, you should receive an email invitation in April via the Institute of Physics network Sputnik.  Please send requests for places to masterclass@physics.gla.ac.uk.  Confirmation will be sent in late April or early May and in case of over-subscription a fair allocation to schools will be made.

This masterclass is part of a National Particle Physics Masterclass series held throughout the UK.
