Presentation for general audience to explain what is the role of the Higgs boson. It introduces what are the fundamental particles and the Standard Model, then shows the role of the Higgs field and the Higgs boson. It also explains how it was discovered by the LHC experiments.

Presentation to explain to general audiences what is the Higgs boson. It reviews first what are the fundamental particles and the Standard Model, then explains the role of the Higgs field and the Higgs boson as an excitation of the field. It also shows how it was discovered at the LHC...

Presentation to explain what is dark matter, review the proofs of its existence and show the various attempts to detect it.

This presentation explains what is dark matter, reviews several proofs of its existence and shows the differents attempts to figure out what it is.

A simple presentation to explain the excitement surrounding the discovery of the Higgs boson. Borrows heavily from other presentations but adds lots of animation. Two versions are included: one is in English only; the other is in English and traditional Chinese. Talk was given in Taiwan in...

Hangout with CERN (Wednesdays at 17:00 CET)

Buried 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to high energies and then collides them in four different underground halls. Inside...

Higgs "God Particle" Boson: A talk geared for my wife & professionals like her

This public talk was given shortly after the announcement of the discovery of the Higgs boson.  It is geared for my wife, J.A. Hong, MD & professionals like her.  The audience was a room full of physicians at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital on August 15, 2012.

Discovering the Higgs Boson

Buried about 100m below the French / Swiss countryside, between the Alps and the Jura Mountains, is a 27km tunnel housing the Large Hadron Collider at CERN.  This chain of superconducting magnets accelerates protons to very high energies and then collides them at four different places. ...

And the discovery made Peter Higgs very happy.

Talk given in the morning session of the international masterclasses at Lund University (see: http://www.hep.lu.se/masterclass/index.html). The talk covers theoretical foundations (Standard Model, Feynman diagrams), accelerators,...

A presentation about CERN and LHCb designed to be given by members of the LHCb collaboration to school classes of 15-17 year olds. In French. Made by LHCb physicist Monica Pepe-Altarelli.
This 65 slide presentation gives an overview of the Large Hadron Collider, particle physics and the...

A presentation given by UCLA Professor Robert Cousins, presenting the goals of revolutionizing elementary particle physics and the implications for our understanding of the Big Bang and dark matter.
Audience: Students and faculty of University of California Los Angeles (UCLA)
Date:...

This powerpoint presentation was presented to student participants of the European Masterclass on 2 March 2010 in Torino, Italy. Consists of 39 colored slides. The presentation is aimed at high school students. It's an introduction to the ideas of particles physics which stresses the unsolved...

This presentation describes CERN, particle physics and the LHC to younger audiences (featuring helicopters and dinosaurs!)
As it is aimed at 14-18 year olds, the presentation is rather basic.
Indeed it can also be easily adapted for younger audiences (e.g. 10-11) by omitting slides...
