Seminars in High Schools

Scientists from the CFP Unit offer talks for high school students given in their own institutes. These talks deal with fundamental experimental and observational physics, and are directly related to our field of research.
 
We are involved in international scientific projects at the forefront of Physics to deepen the mysteries of nature: we study LHC collisions to characterize the newly discovered Higgs boson and search for other new particles; we participate in distributed scientific computation projects related to LHC (Grid); in other experiments we investigate the properties of neutrinos, elusive subatomic particles; we conduct observations to unravel the mysteries of the expansion of the universe, dark matter and dark energy; and we are involved in international scientific projects at the forefront of physics to delve into the mysteries of nature: we study LHC collisions to characterize the newly discovered Higgs boson and search for other new particles; we participate in distributed scientific computation projects related to LHC (Grid); in other experiments we investigate the properties of neutrinos, elusive subatomic particles; we conduct observations to unravel the mysteries of the expansion of the universe, dark matter and dark energy; we investigate the evolution of stars (supernovae and black holes); we even conduct experiments to determine the origin and composition of cosmic rays, trying to find the dark matter and lost antimatter of the universe, both on the International Space Station and in observatories on Earth.
 
Since the academic year 2019-2020, our seminars are included in the CIEMAT Seminars Series, in which the number of topics and talks available is much higher than what we offer. You can continue to request our talks as you have done so far, or choose other topics not related to our fields of research.
 
You must request the talks from teachers of the institute through this website. Registration is open from 1 to 15 October. If you are not clear about the topic of the talk you can request more than one. We will contact you by email to finalize details of the talk.
 
The talks are free and can be given in English. Some speakers can even give them in French, Italian or German.
