School Programmes Physics

 

 

 

Why can airplanes fly?

What does an atom look like? What is it made of? 

What are neutrinos and why is modern science interested in these particles?

 

 

Questions like the ones above are answered in different programmes for elementary and high school students,  organized by various institutes of the department.

PRISMA and its participating institutions aim to substantially contribute to the physics education of students on all grade levels. We are continously involved both in the realization of new and in the development of existing activities.

If you want to learn more you are welcome to participate in the "Masterclasses Particle Physics" to learn about the discovery of the Higgs boson or you just drop in for discussions around physics topics - venue: local pub.
