Half day presentation and discussion on the ATLAS experiment and the HYPATIA demonstrator
A half day presentation and discussion on the ATLAS experiment and the HYPATIA demonstrator took place on last 30 June in the premises of the 3rd General Lyceum of Giannitsa,Macedonia, Greece.
The implementation was part of a four day summer school organized by the Greek Society of Physicists for the very best students of age 15-17. Students from five schools of the greater Giannitsa región participated.
The objective of the talk/hands-on implementation was to present the ISE HYPATIA demonstrator to the students of the Giannitsa city (nothern Greece). The students followed all steps of the demonstartor and answered the PISA questions on each step.The majorty of time was spent in the third phase where they used the embedded HYPATIA tool to search for Z and Higgs boons. The studenst worked in groups of two or three since the school had only 22 PC’s. The results of the PISA accessment can be found at http://goo.gl/Mgsvb5
The resulting learning outcomes are:
- Acquaintance with the High-Energy Physics research and CERN
- Familiarization with the ISE project
- Familiarization with the HYPATIA demonstrator and event analysis techniques
