Summer School 2018

Yerevan Physics Institute together with German Electron Synchrotron ‘DESY’ are organizing an AR-BRA Summer School titled "From Measurement to Discovery-The Scientific Method in Physics" for high school students and UNIVERSITY STUDENTS. 

 When - June 4-8, 2018

 Where – Nor Amberd International Conference Center of Yerevan Physics Institute, Byurakan, Aragatsotn

 Who Can Apply – High School Students and UNIVERSITY STUDENTS With Advance Or Good Knowledge Of Physics, Mathematics and/or Computing

 How To Apply – Please fill the form (click Registration Form For Students): Upon receiving your application, we will get in touch with you for further steps’ details. 

NOTE: The working language of the school is ENGLISH and ARMENIAN, each applicant must go under a selection process, after which he/she can be selected to participate in this school. In the application form the applicant must state why he/she wants to participate in the school and what it will give him/her in the future. The number of participants is strongly limited. The school is cost free.
