This year's annual International Particle Physics Masterclasses at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering in Prague will take place on the 8th of March. For the fifteenth time, participating high school students will be given an opportunity to gain a unique insight into particle physics, with a particular emphasis on the ATLAS and LHCb experiments. After the morning theoretical session consisting of a series of instructive lectures on the basic principles of particle physics, the students will be able to analyze real data from either of the two experiments, based on their personal preference (yet with the necessity of approximately the same number of participants for each experiment). The analyses involve the search for the Higgs boson via Z boson decays (ATLAS) or measuring the lifetime of the D0 meson (LHCb). The higlight of the day is the subsequent videoconference with CERN, in which all participating institutions partake and present and discuss their respective results.
