Oxford Particle Physics Masterclass (online): half-day event

This is an opportunity for students who missed our full-day International Masterclass in Particle Physics to join an on-line event. They will engage with Oxford researchers in a Zoom webinar to learn about our research at the Large Hadron Collider. Then look at real data from the LHCb experiment in an activity to study the D0 particle. We will examine the results in a panel discussion and answer student questions about our quest to explore the universe.


Year 12 students who are studying A-level physics or equivalent


10:00     Introductory lectures on particle physics, the LHCb experiment, and the activity

11:00     Break, on-line activity to examine LHCb data and measure the D0 particle lifetime

12:00     Panel discussion on results and Q&A

13:00     End
