Gran Sasso-Princeton Physics Summer School -2012
The GranSasso National Laboratories in Italy, and Princeton University in New Jersey, USA, are proud to announce the Gran Sasso-Princeton Physics Summer School of 2012. This program stems initially from the scientific collaboration between the physics department at Princeton University and the Laboratorio Nazionale del GranSasso (LNGS) in Italy, where Princeton University scientists conduct research on neutrinos and dark matter.
On its ninth year, the Gran Sasso-Princeton program is open to students enrolled in the fourth and fifth year of high schools located in the Abruzzo Region of Italy. A minimum number of 20 students will be selected on a competitive basis giving preference to fourth year students. The participants in the program will be offered air transportation to and back from Princeton and full accommodation and board in the Princeton campus. The activities in Princeton will include: physics courses in the field of physics and astrophysics that the Gran Sasso Laboratories are involved with, laboratory activities, and English language courses. The two-week physics classes will be offered in Italian, taught by representative scientists from LNGS and University of L’Aquila.
For 2012, the Gran Sasso group will be at Princeton University between July 27 and August 12, and will live in a campus dormitory in Princeton.
There will be no participation of the South Dakota component this year.
