International Masterclasses

Discover the world of Quarks and Leptons with real data: Each year about 6000 high school students in 28 countries come to one of about 130 nearby universities or research centres for one day in order to unravel the mysteries of particle physics. Lectures from active scientists give insight in 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.

Science at Work – Fermilab

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

Six days. Three frontiers. One amazing lab. From 2010 to 2012, a film crew followed a group of scientists at the Department of Energy’s Fermilab and filmed them at work and at home. This 40-minute documentary shows the diversity of the people, research and work at Fermilab. Viewers catch a true behind-the-scenes look of the United States’ premier particle physics laboratory while scientists explain why their research is important to them and the world.

Lecture 4 | New Revolutions in Particle Physics: Basic Concepts

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

(October 26, 2009) Leonard Susskind gives the fourth lecture of a three-quarter sequence of courses that will explore the new revolutions in particle physics. In this lecture he continues on the subject of quantum field theory.

Leonard Susskind, Felix Bloch Professor of Physics, received a PhD from Cornell University and has taught at Stanford since 1979. He has won both the Pregel Award from the New York Academy of Science and the J.J. Sakurai Prize in theoretical particle physics. He is also a member of the National Academy of Sciences.

Lecture 3 | New Revolutions in Particle Physics: Basic Concepts
