BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — A University at Buffalo physics instructor will try to get Native American high school students interested in science as part of a National Science Foundation grant.

Ciaran Williams has been awarded a five-year, $400,000 grant to continue his theoretical work for the Large Hadron Collider project. The world’s biggest atom smasher is located in a 17-mile tunnel beneath the Swiss-French border.

Williams says he will get students at Salamanca High School involved by periodically bringing undergraduate students to the school to do lectures on interesting aspects of physics. Many Salamanca students are members of the Seneca Indian Nation.

Williams also plans to take a few of the top students to the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, a particle physics lab in Illinois where he performed postdoctoral research.
