Some of the students who organized and conducted the masterclass@home

Every year about 150 Particle Physics Masterclasses take place all over Germany. The University of Bonn organizes such workshops once or twice per month giving high-school students the opportunity to gain an insight into ATLAS and Belle-II data analysis.

Due to the coronavirus pandemic all events planned until June had to be canceled. A few weeks later Bonn young scientists participating in “Netzwerk Teilchenwelt” suggested to conduct masterclasses remotely. On April 28th and 29th 20 high-school students participated in the first remote masterclass ever. The PhD students Tanja Holm and Dominik Köhler, the teacher students Johanna Rätz and Inga Woeste as well as the Mainz student Saskia Plura were involved in organizing and running the masterclass, which took place via zoom.

On the basis of this very successful experience, further masterclasses also in cooperation with other German research institutes are in planning. Beside the obvious advantages in the corona crisis, remote masterclasses offer the unique opportunity of reaching schools which are far away from Bonn or from any other university. As of now, many efforts are being made in Netzwerk Teilchenwelt to further improve the workshop format masterclass@home developed in Bonn. p { margin-bottom: 0.25cm; line-height: 115% } a:link { so-language: zxx }
