The Purdue University QuarkNet Center is a group of physicists and teachers who work together to learn about particle physics and how to bring what they learn to the classroom. Mentors Matthew Jones, Daniela Bortoletto, and David Sederberg lead the group along with lead teacher Marla Glover. In spring 2013, the Purdue center sent a physicist, a teacher, and cosmic ray detectors high into the atmosphere in hot air balloons to record the changes in flux. The group is also active in masterclasses and Marla Glover is a QuarkNet LHC fellow.
The Purdue center works on cosmic rays and CMS data.
