In 2013 the Particle Physics group at the University of Glasgow once again held a one-day schools event for students going into 6th year.

Students experienced 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 - which took place on Tuesday 11th June 2013 - was held in the Kelvin Building at the University of Glasgow. There was no charge and lunch was provided.  Participation was by advance booking only, and the limited places available were allocated by ballot.

Another day event for schools will be held in 2014 - details will be announced when they are available.

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 March via the Institute of Physics network Sputnik.  Please send requests for places to masterclass@physics.gla.ac.uk.  In the case of oversubscription a ballot will be held in April in order to allocate places to school groups.

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