Welcome to the Florida State University QuarkNet center. We meet on the campus of FSU and serve teachers in the surrounding area.
This year we were thankful to gather in person at Florida State University July 28 - 30. The workshop began with a focus on the g-2 experiment at Fermilab. Ted Kolberg gave a talk on the experiment and the g-2 measurement's significance in the standard model. In order to have a better idea of the concept behind g-2, Ted gave a review of angular momentum and precession along with a cool demonstration.

09:00 Opening & Welcome (Jasun and Jacob)
July 26-28, 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.
