More than 1000 pupils have attended the Glasgow Particle Physics Masterclass since the current series started in 2009. In the course of the day pupils hear lectures from experts in the field about the research going on in Glasgow in collider physics, the Higgs boson discovery, and neutrino physics, and try their hand at analyzing real collider data and making measurements of fundamental properties of the electron.
