Sir Peter Higgs meets HST2012 Participants a day before the ?discovery? announcement at CERN

Published: 09/07/2012

On 3 July, 2012, just one day before the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN presented their latest results in the search for the long-sought Higgs boson, a very special surprise was waiting for the participants (42 teachers from 25 countries across the world) of CERN's High School Teachers Programme. Sir Peter Higgs, responding enthusiastically to the invitation made by Prof. John Ellis (King's College London), met with the teachers and spent nearly 30 minutes in a Q&A session facilitated by Mick Storr (Coordinator of CERN's High School Teachers Programme). As Mike Seymour (Professor of Particle Physics at the University of Manchester) noted, "this is the best summary of what led up to the publication of his paper I have seen him give".
