QuarkNet at Fermilab Open House, September 23, 2017

QuarkNet contributed two exhibits to the Fermilab Open House. Mark Adams designed a cosmic ray exhibit in which visitors could help take data for an azimuthal angle experiment. Rolling with Rutherford was out in force as well, taking data from 5-roll runs made by physicists of all ages - if you could reach the table, you could contribute to the experiment.
