Interactive video lesson plan for: Quantum Fishing for the Higgs Boson

Activity overview:

Hank talks to some VIPs from CERN about the question on everyone's mind: does the Higgs Boson particle exist? And describes how CERN is going about finding the answer.

Hank interviewed Sergio Bertolucci on October 11, 2011 and Rolf Heuer on October 25, 2011. In the time since then, CERN researchers have gotten some tantalizing clues, but the Higgs boson has yet to be found.
