As an experimental particle physicist, Dr. Alice Bean has joined an adventure with thousands of other scientists and engineers around the world learning about fundamental particles and their interactions. She will share some of the discoveries along the way and research toward future discoveries. Some of the technology developed to detect subatomic particles will also be discussed, along with potential other applications.

University Distinguished Professor Alice Bean joined the University of Kansas Department of Physics and Astronomy in 1993 and has had a very productive research program in experimental particle physics for over 3 decades. She is currently a member of the CMS collaboration at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, in Geneva, Switzerland, and is a co-discoverer of the Higgs Boson. She created the "Quarked! Adventures in the Subatomic Universe" project which promotes science enrichment activities to elementary aged children through its popular website: quarked.org.

All Science On Tap events are free and will be held in the beer hall area at Free State Brewery. Individuals with disabilities are encouraged to attend University of Kansas sponsored events. If you require a reasonable accommodation in order to participate in this event, please contact Anne Tangeman by October 9 at atangeman@ku.edu.
