Welcome to the QuarkNet Center at the University of Hawaii. We serve teachers on the Hawaiian Islands.
There are five cosmic ray detectors currently in Hawaii but
not all take data regularly. About ten high school physics
teachers actively participated before the pandemic. Only one
event (CMS Masterclass on 12 March 2022) has been held since 2020.
Here is the agenda page that Shane Wood from QuarkNet and Tiffany Coke
from Punahou have pieced together for the Saturday, March 12
Teacher Workshop Dates: Oct. 6-7, 2022 (Thursday & Friday)
- Location: University of Hawaii at Manoa: Watanabe Hall, Room 417A

QuarkNet Teacher Participants:
Summary of Hawaii Cosmic Ray Day workshop on 28 Sept. 2019 by Michael Jones. The workshop Saturday went well except for a delay at the start due to heavy traffic on the freeway. There were 21 high school students from 4 high schools: 10 from McKinley 8 from Kamaile Acad. plus teacher 2 from Leilehua plus teacher 1 from Kaiser plus teacher Three other QuarkNet high school teachers helped. Also helping were several grad students and postdocs from Prof. Bindi's group.

Using flux graphs, the reliability of a Student Cosmic Ray Detector can be identified. Analysis of
numerous detectors with a variety of geometry and parameters have produced specific detector data
characteristics that identify reliable detectors. The two most telling properties are a horizontal best fit
line in the flux plots, and no more than 15% of a deviation from that line.
