The IOP is teaming up with the Association of Science Education at the N. Ireland Science Park on Dec 9th to highlight the cutting edge of particle physics research at CERN in Switzerland together with its local connections to Belfast.
The Lords of the Ring will feature interviews with Dr. Steve Myers, Director of Accelerators and Technology at CERN and Prof. James Stirling of Cambridge (a theoretical particle physicist) both of whom were born and educated in N. Ireland. They will be interviewed by Susie Millar (ITV) and will concentrate on recent events and results at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN as well as on the paths which have lead Steve and James to physics. There will be around 100 school students attending from a wide mixture of local schools.
The event will also be webcast. See http://www.nisp.co.uk/
