The Standard Model of matter
A in-class presentation and video interview with Dr Mark Scarcella exploring module 8 topic
What is the Standard Model? What evidence suggests that protons and neutrons are not fundamental particles? What is the role of particle accelerators in obtaining evidence that tests and/or validates aspects of theories?
This presentation, along with the video interview with Dr Mark Scarcella can be used to help Year 12 students answer the above questions.
The presentation includes links to suggested classroom activities for introducing the core components of the Standard Model along with the relevant evidence supporting its development.
Dr Mark Scarcella outlines his contribution as part of the ATLAS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in the 2012 discovery of the Higgs boson.
