Presentation and discussion on the ATLAS experiment and the HYPATIA demonstrator

A half day presentation and discussion on the ATLAS experiment and the HYPATIA demonstrator took place on last 27 April in the premises of General Lyceum of Avlonari, Evoia, Greece.

The objective of the talk/hands-on implementation was to present the  ISE HYPATIA demonstrator to the students of the Avlonari town (Evia island). The students followed all steps of the demonstartor and answered the PISA questions on each step.The majorty of time was spent in the third phase where they used the embedded HYPATIA tool to search for Z and Higgs boons.The students had taken aprt earlier (few months ago)  in a virtual visit to CERN and had the opportunity to ask questions to the researchers present at CERN.

The results of the PISA accessment can be found at:
