Materials for the Hands-On Activity

During the Masterclass, the students will carry out a "Hands-On" activity were they will use a software called HYPATIA and real data from the Large Hadron Collider to identify different particles and relate them to different physical events such as the decay of the Higgs Boson.

If you want to practice and get a feel of what the activity is about before the Masterclass you can check this website to get an idea of how particles are identified. Similarly, in this website, you will learn about the different particle physics events that you will be analyzing!

A lot of other useful information about the activity, particle physics and how particle detectors work can be found here.
