ACS Students Analyzed Data from the Large Hadron Collider in CERN
For a second year in a row the students from the Particle Physics club at ACS took part in the World Wide Data Day.
The Large Hadron Collider World Wide Data Day (W2D2) is a 24-hour span, in which students from around the world have the opportunity to analyze data from the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN, Switzerland, the largest accelerator of particles in the world used by physicists to study the birth of the Universe and the early stages of its expansion.
On the W2D2, November 10th, 2022, our students worked with data from ATLAS, the largest detector in CERN, and discussed their results in a videoconference with the physicists-moderators K. Cecire and Dr. R. Hadjiyska, BAS, together with peers from Australia and Algeria.
Students lingered on long after the videoconference was over, sharing their impressions and eagerly making plans for future work and participation in other similar events.
