High-school students dive into Particle Physics

During the coming weeks, high-school students around the world are invited to nearby research institutes and universities for a day-long programme to experience life at the forefront of basic research. These International Masterclasses give students the opportunity to become particle physicists for a day. During a Masterclass, participants work with data from experiments at CERN´s Large Hadron Collider, or LHC, under the supervision of physicists. The Masterclasses this year are organized for March 1 through April 11 and will attract students from 52 countries worldwide.
