Description

The Hong Kong Teacher Programme 2024 will take place from 28 July - 2 August 2024. Lectures, on-site visits, exhibitions, and hands-on workshops will introduce its participants to cutting-edge particle physics. We hope our participants will go back to Hong Kong as ambassadors, who pass on the subject to our next generation of physicists, engineers, IT specialists...
