Royal Holloway Particle Physics Masterclass

On Thursday 28th April  2017, seventeen AS level students attended the a masterclass as the Royal Holloway University.

The students observed lectures on particle physics and broadened their knowledge on dark matter, particles and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)  in CERN. They were taught about the complex technology used in the particle accelerator, how results are processed through international collaboration and  how the detectors distinguish between the newly formed particles.

As well as this, students gained an appreciation of academic research following A-level studies.
