Our mission is to bring Modern Physics to all schools in Northwest Indiana. To encourage students to discover and become true scientist all while interacting with some of the worlds most renown modern physicists.
A small QuarkNet center in Northwest Indiana.
- Produced a week long curriculum
- Students designed a long term water shielding study for CRMD's
- Created a new logo for the PNW Center for High Energy Physics
- Created a poster for the QuarkNet Center
Tuesday 20 June 2017
Intro to neutrino physics:
Divide into 3 groups and try to answer the questions in this activity.
Foundation Question for all 3 groups: What are neutrinos?
Each group reports when finished.
|15:00||Muon lifetime, MINERvA style|
|15:45||MINERvA momentum transfer activity|
|16:45||close and reflections|
June 9-10, 2016
Participating teachers will be able to use the LIGO e-Lab to:
- Plot and interpret data recorded by LIGO seismic instruments
- Explain the importance of LIGO seismic data in gravitiational wave search
- Use LIGO seismic data to demonstrate classical physics concepts.
Times and specific activities are subject to adjustment.
