IceCube Masterclass in Münster!

Our working group hosts the IceCube Masterclass for another run. Here, pupils can grasp how the experiment detects neutrinos.

With presentations and do-it-yourself experiments, the students will be introduced to the topic. Raffaela Busse, who was a winterover last year, will give insights about the life and work at South Pole. Next, the participants have the opportunity to analyze real IceCube data. At the end, there will be a discussion of the results with other participants from different institutes in form of a video conference, like usually done in big collaborations.

Further information, also about other masterclasses of the Netzwerk Teilchenwelt at the Uni Münster, can be found at For questions contact Lew Classen.
