The ALICE project, of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Switzerland, is supported by young students from Sinaloa, Mexico.
Arturo Fernández - PhD student at Universidad Politécnica de Sinaloa (Upsin) - Rafael Narcio - Upsin undergraduate student - Luis Torres - University of Sinaloa (UAS) student - and Solangel Rojas - PhD student at the Faculty of Physical- Mathematics (FCFM) of UAS -, participate in the areas of electronics, data analysis, physics, software development, among others.
The leader of the project, Dr. Ildefonso León Monzón, UAS scientist and level II of the National System of Researchers (SNI) commented that the involvement of more young people is a strategy to integrate the largest number of new and talented people into projects of international scope, such as ALICE.
"I am convinced that talent is everywhere and that we need to give young people opportunities to integrate and take responsibility for the project. There are young graduates, and we will involve them now, with very punctual tasks", he said.
Due to the contributions made, the Sinaloa team was able to extend its participation until 2022, which is why the researcher considers that it is necessary for the entity and the country to bet on "frontier" science.
