The discovery of the Higgs boson at CERN in 2012 provided the last missing piece of the Standard Model of elementary particle physics. The Large Hadron Collider has been closed since early 2013 for upgrades and will reopen in the spring. We will look at what the Higgs discovery means and what could lie beyond it.

2015 Charleston STEM Fest
February 7, 2015
STEM Festivals are an exciting way to bring STEM concepts to the community and demonstrate how STEM education and careers are vital for our local economy. Festivals bring STEM education into surprising places in unexpected ways—so they reach a broad and diverse audience. Research has found that over three-quarters of science festival attendees report the event made science learning fun for them. And, festivals light a spark in those who participate, leading attendees to seek out additional science experiences throughout the year, and programming partners to develop new collaborations.
