Alice Master Classes

Title: ALICE educational material - short films for high-school students and physics teachers


Short classes by physicists conducting the masterclasses sessions, i.e. experienced with general public audience. Example: Looking for strange particles with ALICE
  1. Introduction to first part of the exercise : what are strange particles, V0 decays, invariant mass.
  2. Introduction to second part of the exercise : strangeness enhancement; centrality of lead-lead collisions; explanation of efficiency, yield, background etc
  3. Demonstration of the software for the 1st part of the exercise - visual identification of V0s
  4. Demonstration of the software for the 2nd part of the exercise - invariant mass spectra - background subtraction and calculation of number of Kaons, Lambdas, antiLambdas.


Series of short films or presentations with voice-over (3 minutes each) order is important (e.g. ALICE experiment example below).


World-accessible, made for high-school students participating in (international) masterclasses; also for high-school physics teachers participating in masterclasses sessions.


Slides and screen capture by expert physicists in the outreach programme and students walking the public through the software installation.
