To celebrate the 100th anniversary of Victor Franz Hess's discovery of cosmic particles on August 7, 1912, DESY, Fermilab, QuarkNet and Network Particle World are organizing the 1st International Cosmic Particle Day.
 
School students from across the globe can participate on ...

The CMS collaboration welcomed a class of French high school students to the CERN facility in Meyrin, Switzerland on the 12 of March, 2012.  Students spent the day meeting with physicists, hearing talks, asking questions, and participating in a hands-on exercise using real data collected by the...

Expand Your Horizons is an international organization with the goal of promoting science and technology careers to young girls. In November of 2011, the second "Expand Your Horizons" conference in Geneva took place. This is an interactive workshop where 250 girls aged 9-14 years from France and...

International Particle Physics Masterclasses (MC) have become a phenomenon. 8000 high school students from 22 countries evaluate real LHC data at 99 universities across the world every year.
From my point of view it is an extremely successful event. However, it is only a one day thing. We...
