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?

 

WHAT IS A MASTERCLASS?

This is all exciting but, since this masterclass is about neutrinos, maybe we should learn something about them:

 

WHAT ARE NEUTRINOS?

Neutrinos are quite different from other particles and very difficult to detect. Thus we need specialized detectors, like MINERvA.
