Discover the Cosmos High School Students Workshop in cooperation with NTW High School Students Workshop at CERN
Each year 2 groups of about 20 high school students, which are active members of the program conducted by the German network "Netzwerk Teilchenwelt", are invited to visit CERN for 4 days to deepen their knowledge in particle physics and to get in touch with CERN's scientists.
The German "Netzwerk Teilchenwelt" is a network of 22 particle and astroparticle institutes in Germany and gives access to modern science for 3.500 students and 300 teachers a year. Throughout the year, about 100 young scientists demonstrate in schools and school labs all over Germany through particle physics masterclasses and cosmic-ray workshops how modern science works. Furthermore interested students and teachers are welcome to engage in particle physics and are invited to workshops at CERN and do their own research projects.
The program "Netzwerk Teilchenwelt" is run by the IKTP at TU Dresden, funded by the federal ministry of education and research (BMBF) and under the patronage of the German Physical Society (DPG).See: www.teilchenwelt.de
