International Physics Masterclasses

Submitted by Steven Goldfarb on
International Physics Masterclasses

Host an International Physics Masterclass! Each masterclass consists of a series of lectures and discussions on particle physics followed by a hands-on session, during which students analysed real LHC data and performed measurements like particle physicists. At the end of each day, like in an international research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference for discussion and combination of their results. Visit the International Masterclass website to find out more.

From ATLAS Around the World: Preparing for Run 2 from Colombia

After a two-year stay at CERN, I moved back to Colombia in 2012. Being involved in ATLAS and working from Colombia has been a great experience for me; I get to continue contributing to the physics searches and also do other things like teaching, giving seminars, and doing outreach activities.
