The SHEP group has for many years hosted annual Particle Physics Masterclasses - day long events, highlighting some of the latest developments in Particle Physics research, and enabling physics students in their sixth form (and their teachers) to experience the excitement of research in this fundamental field. They provide the opportunity to relate A-level physics to fundamental research, and provide valuable access to practical experience and enthusiastic practitioners.
Since the covid pandemic we have moved these events, now in collaboration with the broader STAG research centre, online where we can reach a wider audience. The online environment also allows us to hold Masterclasses more frequently. To date we have held two online events on
Future events will be held on
A typical masterclass has two 50 minute talks by our STAG experts in the areas of Particle Physics, Quantum Gravity, General Relativity or Astrophysics. We also host a 45 minute Q&A session with experts in these fields.
If you or your school group would like to sign up for a future event please contact Dr Pearl John email@example.com.
