The 3A and 6C students had the chance to participate in a very interesting discussion with Dr. Marc Goulette. Dr. Marc Goulette is a particle physicist that worked in the ATLAS experiment for the University of Geneva. ATLAS is one of the main experiments currently running at CERN at the Large Hadron Collider.
What is particle physics? Why is particle physics important?
What is ATLAS? What kind of research is conducted at CERN?
How do particle accelerators benefit society?
And many more questions were debated, giving the students an excellent opportunity to understand the challenges of working in particle physics.
