Gr@v members António Morais and Felipe Freitas and their students João Pino and Pedro Rodrigues (from left to right on the picture) have participated in the 2020 edition of the CERN masterclass held at the University of Minho and organized by LIP - Laboratório de Instrumentação e Física Experimental de Partículas. The event took place on the 28th of February and on the 6th of March. While António gave a talk to high school physics teachers entitled "Questões em Aberto em Física de Partículas" (Open question in Particle Physics), Felipe, João and Pedro were monitors of an experimental activity where high school students had to rediscover the Higgs boson and other fundamental particles with real data.

This activity was supported by the project From Higgs Phenomenology to the Unification of Fundamental Interactions, with reference PTDC/FIS-PAR/31000/2017.
