Particle Physics Summer School 2022

The Particle Physics Summer School is a FREE three day residential/online course introducing students aged 14-15 to Particle Physics, Science and Engineering. It will be held at St Paul’s School, London from Wednesday 13 to Friday 15 July 2022.

The course is organised and run in partnership between St Paul’s School and the Particle Physics Research Centre at Queen Mary University of London. It brings to life the complex subject of particle physics through a series of workshops and lectures led by teachers and academic researchers. The course will demonstrate the importance of the field across the sciences, engineering and computer science.

This unique course is open to 24 non-fee paying school students from across the UK in year 10 or equivalent and is entirely free to attend.
