Particle Physics at CERN – Live Talk | Fundraiser for Mermaids UK

Do you want to know how to measure a new particle and what the biggest questions in particle physics are? If so, then this 30 minute live talk about particle physics at CERN using the ATLAS detector is for you!

After the presentation, there was a 30 minute question and answer session. This talk is part of my fundraising efforts for Mermaids, a charity in the UK that supports young gender-diverse people. I am signed up for the Great North Run in September, but given the current situation, I’m not sure if it will be going ahead. In addition, I know that a lot of charities are struggling for funding now with many of their fundraising opportunities cancelled. So I thought this talk would be a fun way to share what we do as particle physicists as a thank you to those who have supported already and perhaps raise a bit more cash for the vital work that Mermaids is doing in the process.

Please note that there is no obligation to give, as I know that many people are in difficult financial situations right now.
