Thanks to this experience, the students approached the world of particle physics research, and the discovery of the mysteries of the universe, following a cycle of online lessons, that, as of Monday 11 April have been available on the public channel YouTube of the INFN National Laboratories of Frascati. Having started in 2011 with 20 students who were mainly Italian, INSPYRE, which is now in its XII edition, is a chance for exchange among students and for discovering the world of scientific research.
