SCIPP/QuarkNet Particle Physics Masterclass 2023 was a success!

On March 4th, 2023, high school students from Santa Cruz county as well as the Bay Area traveled to UC Santa Cruz for the annual SCIPP/Quarknet Particle Physics Masterclass. Over 50 students were in attendance, working alongside SCIPP faculty to analyze data from the ATLAS experiment and experience what it is like to research Particle Physics. The event concluded with a videoconference alongside scientists from CERN and Fermilab where students had the chance to present their data and receive feedback. Thanks to all our mentors and student attendees who showcased their passion for physics and research! We are excited to host more events like this in the future.
