- What are the fundamental building blocks of matter?
- How can I identify them?
- Which forces hold them together?
- How do these forces work?
- How far have the secrets of forces and matter been understood so far?
Find the answers to these and other questions
by browsing, reading, and working through some of the educative
materials on particle physics which is collected here. Most
of the material contains interactive elements, some even real
particle physics events for making your own measurements,
and understanding particle physics "hands-on". The
material was collected for the IPPOG Particle Physics Masterclasses, where some
of the measurements form the practical exercises for high
school students spending a day at one of the Research
Institutes. More info on the teaching systems, which are
suited for a wide range of readers, is accessible via the
menu in the left column.
