A Summer School For High School and University Students Starts
A summer school titled "From Measurement to Discovery-The Scientific Method in Physics"; started a Nor Amberd International Conference Center today on June 5, 2018. A. Alikhanyan National Laboratory together with DESY (Germany) and DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service) sponsorship organized this summer school for high school and university students with advanced or good knowledge of Physics, Mathematics and Computing. The students were selected by a special selection process and from 69 applications only 20 bright students have become the participants of this exciting school. During this summer school Prof. A. Chilingarian, Prof. N. Akopov, Dr. G. Karyan, Dr. T. Karapetyan from A.Alikhanian National Laboratory and Prof. J. Knapp and Prof. T. Naumann from DESY will teach them:
the basic methods of making progress in science,
data analysis, simulations,
will conduct practical works on particle physics, astrophysics, atmospheric physics and statistics.
On June 8, the last day of the school the students will go on tour to Aragats Research Station. Some of these students will join the YerPhI Smart and Enthusiastic Minors (YESEM) group that was formed a year ago and aims to educate high school students the basics of physics, instrumentations, data analysis and modeling, critical evaluation of scientific findings, as well as to perform small research projects by their own.
