Here are the instructions for uploading data to the eLab AND to the Data Diary.
The Data Diary is located at: https://sites.google.com/view/quarknet2017eclipse/data-diary
These are the EQUIP settings for the Eclipse Experiment. PLEASE NOTE: all 4 counters should be checked as triggers.
These are the instructions to create the group account, Eclipse#### for your experiment. The #### is your DAQ number.
This is the updated instructions for the fixed cosmic ray telescope, including opaque bag over the counters to reduce light leaks.
Here is the updated version of the telescope. We have included minor changes and the use of opaque bags around the counters to reduce problems of light leaks.
Discussed expanding and improving masterclasses.
brainstorming on coding possiblilities for level 4 LHC actitivies
Poked around (found bugs) in CMS e-Lab. Brainstorming organizing of using the new interface in workshops and explorations.
and the rest of the agenda
30 hrs in a day
still working on the specs.....but did video conference with Tom McCauley and Joel Griffith on CIMA, ISpy, CMS elab and data sets....talked about Adam's Level 4 activity with IT team
Still need to do lots of stuff with neutrinos
Ligo----discussed topics for the data strand....specific ideas for specific ideas activities to be worked on ..in future
Started coverage plans for summer work
did not look at templeates for workshops
need to do
Templetate update for CMS elab
Complete Ligo activities

QuarkNet offers a variety of summer workshops for our centers. These are facilitated by staff or fellows, who come to the center to work with teachers. The table below summarizes the workshops currently available.
|Workshop||Fellows group||Duration||Brief Description||Sample Agenda||Contact|
|ATLAS Data||LHC||2 days||Teachers learn to use Data Portfolio activities of increasing sophisitication from simple preparatory exercises (Level I) through masterclass measurements (Level II). The emphasis is on putting ATLAS Data into the hands of students and planning implementation of the activities that do this. This workshop also serves as a good preparation for a robust teacher role in facilitation of a ATLAS local or international masterclass||Oklahoma State 2014||Ken Cecire|
|CMS Data||LHC||2 days||Teachers learn to use Data Portfolio activities of increasing sophisitication from simple preparatory exercises (Level I) through masterclass measurements (Level II). The emphasis is on putting CMS Data into the hands of students and planning implementation of the activities that do this. This workshop also serves as a good preparation for a robust teacher role in facilitation of a CMS local or international masterclass||Fermilab 2015||Ken Cecire|
|CMS e-Lab||LHC||2-3 days||Teachers learn to lead students into investigations of CMS data in the CMS e-Lab (Level III). They become familiar with CMS e-Lab resources and datasets and perform a short investigation on which they may create and present online posters. Teachers develop a plan for implementing the e-Lab with students, including a consideration of the types of research questions that the e-Lab supports.||Purdue 2013||Ken Cecire|
|Cosmic Ray e-Lab||Cosmic||3 days||Teachers learn to develop scientific research projects with their students, using Cosmic Ray muons as their laboratory. They are introduced to Cosmic Rays and explore the use of scintillation detectors that are common in HEP collaborations. Teachers split into research teams: building detectors, developing research questions, uploading and analyzing data, and reporting on findings. Hands-on experience with e-Lab tools prepares participants to design and to analyze many types of measurements with muons, as well as to mentor student research groups.||Idaho State 2015 (below)||Mark Adams|
|LIGO e-Lab||not applicable||2 days||LIGO operates a seismic array at each of its two observatory locations to monitor the impact of seismic noise on the project's gravitational wave detectors. The LIGO e-Lab invites students to undertake investigations using these seismic data sets. The LIGO e-Lab workshop will allow teachers to gain experience with LIGO's seismic data and to develop a plan for implementing the e-Lab with students, including a consideration of the types of research questions that the e-Lab supports.||Univ. of Kansas 2016||Shane Wood|
