Völkermarkt: Alpen-Adria-Gymnasium Völkermarkt | Each year about 10,000 high school students from 47 countries come to one of about 200 nearby universities or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures by active scientists provide insight into 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. At the end of each day, like in an international research collaboration, the participants join in a video conference for discussion and combination of their results.
International Masterclasses 2016 take place from 11.2. - 23.3.2016.
