MINERVA is a masterclass tool for students to learn more about the ATLAS experiment at CERN. It is based on a simplified setup of the ATLAS event display, Atlantis, which allows users to visualise what is happening in the detector. The aim is to look at ATLAS events and try to recognise what particles are seen in the detector. There are tutorial events, then a selection of events to categorise and finally a search for the Higgs! The project is a joint venture between the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL) and the University of Birmingham.
Minerva was the Roman name of Greek goddess Athena. She was considered to be the virgin goddess of warriors, poetry, medicine, wisdom, commerce, crafts, and the inventor of musicWiki
