Georgian Technical University hosted international particle physics masterclass Hands on Particle physics.
Hands on particle physics is huge international masterclass and its main aim is to popularize particle physics, masterclass is involving 52 countries and more than 200 universities or research centers, which gives opportunity to youth aged 15-19 to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in topics and methods of basic research at the fundaments of matter and forces, enabling the students to perform measurements on real data from particle physics experiments themselves.
Lectures in the morning were read by prof. Ia Iashvili and dr. Archil Surmava . Participants also had the opportunity to “visit” CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) with virtual tour see how things actually work and ask questions about life at CERN.
Besides Georgian Technical University masterclass was hosted parallelly in Mostar, Santander and Athens Demokritos. At the end of the day participants had a chance to ask questions to CERN moderators and do a little quiz, after this they received IPPOG International certificates.
Locally event was organized by IPPOG representative in Georgia MIRZIASHVILI Keti and Georgian Engineering Team (GET).
