Event: Be a Physicist for the Day: Find a Particle at the LHC

Wednesday 10th March, 9am - 4:30pm


This virtual experience day gives an opportunity for 15 to 19-year old students to discover particle physics and see what it’s like to study physics at the University of Sheffield.

It offers the unique chance to take a glimpse into the life of a particle physicist. You’ll work with researchers and students from Sheffield University to explore data from the ATLAS experiment- one of the four major experiments at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, which is trying to answer big questions such as: What are the basic building blocks of matter? And what are the fundamental forces of nature?
