The Particle Therapy MasterClass is a hands-on educational activity, addressing high-school students, which demonstrates direct applications of physics for the benefit of society, focusing on the treatment of cancer tumours with charged particles.
A short introduction to the Laboratory, followed by a tour of two of its operational sites: accelerators, control rooms, technical facilities or high-technology workshops. Group tours must be booked in advance!
In the Universe of Particles exhibition, explore the questions CERN physicists are trying to answer: given that the entire universe is made of particles, where do they come from? Why do they behave in the way they do?
Every year, CERN offers various professional development programmes for teachers to keep up-to-date with the latest developments in particle physics and related areas, and experience a dynamic, international research environment.
