High school students in Podgorica are solving the problem of particles collision (hadron). This is a scientific problem faced by scientists of the European Center for Nuclear Physics (CERN) in one of the two largest CERN projects - the Big Hadron Collider (CMS), which today will also partly include students from the PMF at the International class of physics, reports Vijesti on March 23, 2018.
For the first time, students will have the opportunity to see the collision of two particles at the highest energy level and which particles are generated after that process.
The lecture and experiment - "Masterclass" was opened by the Minister of Science and Physics, Sanja Damjanović, and is being held in cooperation with her department with the University of Montenegro and CERN.
"This 'Masterclass' is essential because today you can really be scientists and face the problems that they face in CERN," she said.
The process and the development of the CMS experiment were brought closer to students and explained by the leading physicist from these areas, Lidija Živković, who led the project.
Professor of Physics at PMF Nataša Raičević said that CMS and Atlas, both CERN's, are the world's most significant physics projects.
She gave her students and everyone interested in the CERN's project a few tips if they wanted to have a future in physics.
"Particle physics is the right science for you if you want to work and if you are good and benevolent, or if you are good at teamwork because these are projects that can’t be performed by one man or a small group of people," she said.
Since last year, the University of Montenegro has been a full member of the CMS.
