CMS e-Lab Workshop at CSU 2017

June 5-6, 2017


Participating teaches will be able to:

  • Identify particles colliding and emerging from collisions at the LHC from CMS data.
  • Interpret the physical meaning of plots created from CMS data in light of conservation rules (energy, momentum, charge).
  • Ask and answer questions about the physics of high energy collisions using CMS data. 

We will also provide opportunities to engage in critical dialogue among teaching colleagues about what they learn in the workshop.
