The International Cosmic Day enables students to get in contact with astroparticle physicists to get a first insight into their research, experimental methods and everyday work as a scientist. Some questions which will be adressed are:

  • What are cosmic particles?
  • Where do...

At the Particle Physics Masterclasses participants analyse real data from CERN. If you are planning to have a Masterclass at your school or institution, it is recommendable to prepare students in advance for this event. The hand-out contains of a description of the research task, a short...

What is explored at CERN? What happens when particles collide at the LHC? What does particle physics have to do with cosmology? How was antimatter discovered and what is the Higgs-Boson? And is there any particle use of practical physics? This package of material gives answers to these and many...

ATLAS is a modern detector for elementary particles located are CERN. It allows to trace particles that are generated at proton collisions at the LHC. This package allows you to understand the fundamental principles of the detector. The main document consists of worksheets, videos, a...

Do-it-yourself cloud chamber

The cloud chamber is one of the oldest detectors for elementary particles. A simple type of a cloud chamber can be built with materials that are easy to purchase. This instruction shows how to build a cloud chamber and gives information on the traces left by particles as well as the particles...

Elementary Particle Package

The Standard Model of particle physics describes the elementary particles and their interactions. This package contains a set of cards that can be used in physics lessons or Particle Physics Masterclasses to introduce, explain and repeat the different particles. One set consists of 12 Cards of...
