Pictured are participants at the Geant4 tutorial course held at SLAC on March 8-10. The tutorial was conducted by instructors from SLAC, aimed at novice and middle level users of the Geant4 simulation toolkit. The classes consisted of lectures, hands-on tryouts and open discussions. Geant4 is a toolkit that simulates the passage of particles through matter. It is used in diverse applications, including simulation of high energy and nuclear physics experiments, radiation shielding, space radiation transport and effects, and medical physics. SLAC has been actively involved in its development and user support since the launch of the project.
