Event description
This year ATLAS Masterclass has moved online as a virtual workshop to help students unravel the mysteries of particle physics.

About this Event

Grade 11 and 12 students who register for Saturday's workshop will receive an invite to join Friday's special ATLAS virtual tour event.

Discover the world of High Energy Particle Physics by analyzing real data from the ATLAS Experiment at CERN.

Join students from across North America to learn about research methods and topics, analyze real experimental data, and share results with other sites over the course of a half-day video conference webinar.

During this half-day online event every student will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about research topics and methods that are fundamental to particle physics
  • Analyze measurements on real data from the ATLAS particle physics experiment at CERN
  • Network with other high school students and researchers to discuss results

What is ATLAS?

ATLAS is one of the two general-purpose detectors at the CERN Large Hadron Collider. The ATLAS Collaboration consists of several thousand researchers, including over a hundred scientists from TRIUMF and Canadian universities, conducting research with the ATLAS detector. ATLAS attempts to answer questions regarding the basic building blocks and forces of nature. Ground-breaking research is continuously being done with ATLAS, including the discovery of the Higgs boson.

What is Masterclass?

TRIUMF has partnered with Simon Fraser University the University of British Columbia and the University of Victoria to bring the Particle Physics Masterclass experience to high school students in BC. The event will be hosted by the local scientists involved in the ATLAS Collaboration at CERN.

During this time students will learn from leading physics researchers and experience what it is like to be a particle physicist by analyzing real data from the ATLAS project. At the end of the day, like all international research collaborations, students will join in a discussion with all other groups and combine their results.
