We give seminars in High Schools about particle and astroparticle physics, cosmology, astrophysics and scientific computing. The lectures are intended to students in 1st and 2nd courses of Bachillerato and, in some cases, in 4th of ESO. This seminars cycle is organized together with CPAN.
Twice a year we host particle physics masterclasses, one during the Science Week in November, another in February organized jointly with CERN. In the masterclass, students in the 2nd course of Bachillerato come to CIEMAT to preform a practical analysis of real data from the CMS experiment at CERN.
Students in the 4th course of ESO can visit CIEMAT for few days and learn first hand the fundamental and technological research performed in our centre. Within this programme, the students visit our Unit and do some practicals related to particle physics and scientific computing.
