International Masterclasses are one-day events at universities and laboratories in which high school students can, under the tutelage of experts, be "particle physicists for a day". International Masterclasses bring students to the cutting edge of science by enabling them to analyze authentic experimental data. More recently, new initiatives are expanding the range of masterclasses in terms of populations of students, venues, and particle physics experiments. We will discuss these developments and where they may lead.
