IGFAE is hosting a Masterclass in particle physics on 6 April 2018 and has invited Galician high school students to participate. The students will take a day off from school to analyse data of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) under the supervision of IGFAE scientists. At the end of the day, the students will discuss the obtained results in a video conference with Fermilab, USA, and the other participating institutes from around the world. This will give students the experience of working in an international collaboration, which is part of CERN’s everyday life.
The Masterclass at IGFAE is part of an annual program called International Masterclasses. Scientists at about 210 universities and laboratories host Masterclasses at their home institutions. The Masterclasses this year are organized from February until April in more than 50 countries worldwide.
