The Wayne State University QuarkNet center, under mentors Rob Harr and Paul Karchin, has a strong program of research each summer. Detroit-area high school students team up with QuarkNet teachers to work with cosmic ray detectors and the e-Lab in their own projects. The Wayne State group also works with the Detriot Metropolitan Area Physics Teachers (DMAPT) to help tjem bring particle physics to the classroom and create opportunities for professional development. Wayne State is also involved in International Masterclasses each year, allowing students to be "particle physicists for a day".
Students and teachers studying cosmic ray, physicists and teachers collaborating, and more.
