The MINERvA Neutrino Masterclass is where students, working with teachers and physicists, get to be neutrino-physicists-for-a-day. In this masterclass they will:
- learn about MINERvA and particle physics
- make a measurement of now neutrinos interact with the atomic nucleus
- pool their results
- discuss results with their peers in the masterclass and across the world in a masterclass videoconference.
It will help to know more about International Masterclasses and what we mean by a "masterclass". We know that a violin or a flute masterclass is - students learning their art with a master musician - but what is it in the context of particle physics?
This is all exciting but, since this masterclass is about neutrinos, maybe we should learn something about them:
Neutrinos are quite different from other particles and very difficult to detect. Thus we need specialized detectors, like MINERvA.
