Vetal, a multimessenger online analysis tool
Haley James and Elsa Forberger (West High School), Blake Gallay (Middleton High School)
Amanda Nothem (Whitnall HS)
Josh Wood and Sílvia Bravo (WIPAC)
The purpose of our research was to develop an online tool to analyze pubic data sets from IceCube and FermiLAT. The goal was to facilitate multimessenger astronomy analyses targeting both scientists and amateur researchers.
UW–Madison QuarkNet Center 2016-2017 Annual Report
QuarkNet efforts at UW–Madison are led by the Wisconsin IceCube Astrophysics Center (WIPAC). Prof. Justin Vandenbroucke (co-PI) and Dr. Sílvia Bravo (co-PI) work together with several researchers from the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, the Distributed Electronic Cosmic-ray Observatory (DECO), and the desktop muon detector CosmicWatch.
The QuarkNet program @ WIPAC included three activities this year.

Rochester QuarkNet/CMS Masterclass 2017 Report
On April 7, 2017, the University of Rochester Department of Physics and Astronomy hosted a CMS masterclass that was attended by approximately 40 high-school students from Canandaigua and Gates-Chilli, NY. The host was Prof. Garcia-Bellido who gave an introductory talk on particle physics, the LHC, CMS, and the masterclass objectives of identifying events originating from W, Z, or Higgs boson production.
