Maths and Science Collaboration: International Masterclass
Year 11 and Year 12 students from Launceston College were invited to take part in International Masterclass in particle physics on 18th of March 2021. This masterclass gave our students the opportunity to discover the world of quarks and leptons for themselves, by performing measurements on real data from CERN Large Hadron Collider, to meet active particle physics researchers and to link up with like-minded students from other countries.
Students have gained insight in the fundamental matter particles and the forces between them and also worked on their own with data from the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Afterwards students took part in a video conference where they discussed and compared their results with students of other countries and with the moderators at CERN.
