Who is it for?
This event is aimed primarily at A-Level Physics students as well as GCSE students considering studying science at A-Level.
We have run masterclass events for over 10 years and know how valuable they are for the students who participate. This year we will run our Accelerator and Particle Physics Masterclass on 12 March 2024. For those unable to attend, we also plan to run an online event later in the academic year (date to be confirmed).
The event will be broken down into several sessions across the day and will include talks, tours and demonstrations. Every session will include the opportunity for questions and answers. Breaks will also be incorporated.
