About this event

In our final lesson of the year, we will look at the basics of particle discovery through a computational lens. Combining data visualization techniques with non-linear regression, we will see how large particle accelerators like the large hadron collider (LHC) detect new particles in practice. We will be giving a high-level primer on the physics principles at play before hopping into the coding portion of the lesson, so no physics background is needed!

We will be using Kaggle to host all code and data used in the lesson, so make sure to set up an account beforehand.
