LVS School to learn about the Higgs Boson in its next Smalley Lecture
The next free Smalley Lecture at LVS Ascot is The Higgs Boson - Why it Matters. The event is to take place on Wednesday March 6 at 7pm, in the school theatre.
Find out how the search for the elusive particle necessary to give mass to everything in our universe was discovered.
Guest speaker, Professor Ken Peach, who led experimental teams at CERN (European Laboratory for Particle Physics) is to explain the background to the discovery.
While the breakthrough itself may seem rather remote from everyday life, some of the technologies required to make the discovery have a very real impact on it.
Attendees will learn more about the world of particle physics and challenge some of the ideas with an expert in the field.
