FRONTIERS goes to school!!
On the 28th of November 2019, Prof. Christine Kourkoumelis and Stelios Vourakis from IASA visited the 2nd General Senior High School of Gerakas for a Mini Masteclass. The visit followed after an invitation from the school principal Mrs. Georgaki who has participated in the EA/IASA Frontiers Multiplier event on the 12th of October.
About 40 students were first introduced to the physics of CERN and the ATLAS experiment by C. Kourkoumelis. A detailed introduction to the HYPATIA analysis tool was provided by Stelios Vourakis, after which the hands-on exercise for the “discovery” of the Z and Higgs bosons, for 25 students, took place in the school’s ICT lab. After the event, C. Kourkoumelis introduced FRONTIERS to the science teachers.
