Particle Physics Masterclass

Welcome to the University of Manchester Particle Physics Masterclass 2012

The Particle Physics Masterclass is a one-day event specifically designed for sixth form students and their teachers and run at the University of Manchester by practising researchers from our Particle Physics Group. The nationwide programme of Masterclasses began in 1997 and has proved to be stimulating and informative for thousands of students and hundreds of schools. This event is primarily intended for those students taking modules which include particle physics at 'A' or 'AS' level, but is also open to any physics student or teacher interested in studying or teaching the subject. The Masterclass will consist of a mixture of talks given by researchers in the Particle Physics Group and hands-on practical sessions.

Our next Masterclass will be held on Thursday 29th March 2012 at the School of Physics and Astronomy's Schuster Laboratory. This year we will charge a nominal fee of 6 pounds per head to cover the cost of catering.

Masterclasses are organised throughout the UK by the High Energy Particle Physics Group of the Institute of Physics.
