Informal get together, with refreshements and light snacks
A la poursuite des particules fantomes: les neutrinos à travers les Alpes. Soiree au Microcosm, l'exposition permanente du CERN.
A first opportunity to get to know each other and to explore the purposes and goals of the stage
Guided tour of the construction site of the CMS experiment at the LHC.
First there will be a general introduction to CERN, followed by a visit to the accelerator control room in Lab 2 and afterwards the construction site of the CMS experiment.
A general Introduction to the goals and key results of Particle Physics
Swimming pool across the street from CERN main entrance, weather permitting. Pizza in Meyrin.
Introduction session to the working group. information will be given about material to be produced for schools (teachers and students)
In the main Cafeteria
Discussion on the content of the Summer Student Lectures
We discuss the progress of the programme, and plan for the beginning of the working group activities in week 2
Visit to laboratories that are developing some new techniques such as medical applications of particle physics research.
Visit the lab where the LHC superconducting dipoles are tested
ex-HST Dick Hoekzema (HST98, 99) will run a full-day Workshop based on an experimental programme developed for High Schools in the Netherlands.
An introduction to the deep connections between the infinitely small and the history of the Universe
Three identical sessions of this hands-on activity will take place, one at 2pm, a second at 4pm, and third on a subsequent day. Each of the participants will be assigned to just one session.
The ALICE experiment at the LHC is designed to study the collisions of relativistic lead ions. During such collisions, immense densities and temperatures are reached, and we expect matter to behave as a quark and gluon plasma.
Guided tour of the construction site of the ATLAS detector at the LHC
Final session for the third group of teachers
